Last October, Amazon unveiled Amazon Key, a new smart lock feature that allows couriers to deliver packages inside customer homes, even when they're not there. On Tuesday, the e-commerce giant extended Amazon Key's capabilities to the trunk of your car.
The new feature, Amazon Key In-Car, essentially seeks to turn your trunk into a lockbox. It's only available for Amazon Prime members who drive cars manufactured by General Motors and Vovlo as recently as 2015. Customers driving a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac need an active OnStar account to use the service, while Volvo motorists need a Volvo on Call account.
Similarly to the original rollout of Amazon Key, the trunk program is currently being tested in 37 cities throughout the country. It's still very much a pilot program that the bulk of Amazon Prime's 100 million subscribers won't be able to partake in at the moment.
