Snapchat and Amazon are offering a new feature to shop with a “snap.”
Social media app Snapchat is teaming up with Amazon to let users shop with their smartphone cameras.
Users can point the Snapchat camera at a physical product or barcode and do a visual search by pressing and holding on the camera screen.
If Amazon recognizes the product, it will present a link to buy that product or similar ones on Amazon.
Users can tap on the prompt to be redirected to Amazon’s app or website and purchase the item.
