If you have the Amazon iOS app, you might be interested in hearing about the newest update to come to the app. The new Amazon iOS app update was just released, and in this update you are going to find stickers. Yes, the same types of stickers that we have come to know and love from most of the common social media apps. The stickers on Amazon are a little bit different though, so continue reading to learn about the new Amazon stickers and what they do.
Amazon iOS App Adds Stickers for Shopping
Amazon has decided to take a popular thing, which are stickers, and incorporate the stickers into the Amazon iOS app. These stickers are not like the stickers you will find though on Facebook, because these new Amazon stickers give you the power to buy products on Amazon. You can find the new stickers within the camera feed on the Amazon iOS app. You will be able to also look through your camera at real objects and then search for them on Amazon.
The interesting thing is that with the Amazon iOS app, you can look through your camera, and find the product or related products that you are looking at on Amazon. We already had the ability scan barcodes using the Amazon app and it finding that product or similar products on the popular shopping site. Now, you can use the stickers in the same way, meaning it will allow you to search for those products. If you want to check out these stickers, you can go to the Amazon iOS app home screen area and click on the camera. You will then see the stickers which are labeled by category. There are categories like “Pets,” “Women’s,” “Home,” and “Top Picks.” If you click on the stickers, it will take you to the items in Amazon that go with the sticker.
More About Amazon iOS App Update
If you have used Amazon in the past year, you might remember the “Interesting Finds” section of the site. Well, all of the stickers that are now available on the Amazon iOS app come from the Interesting Finds section. You will be able to browse through all of the stickers if you want, including those for “Home” and “Gadgets” among several other categories.
If you want to know how to get the stickers into the shoppable form, all you need to do is click on the “I” right on the sticker. This “I” means information and it will take you to the page of the product that the sticker is representing. You can put a bunch of stickers in one photo and then you will have all of the products you are interested in right there at your fingertips. There is not much you can do with the stickers though besides click on them to find the product on Amazon. You cannot share the stickers or anything like that. Since Amazon is not a social app and does not have the social aspect like Facebook, it does seem odd that the new Amazon iOS app update includes stickers, which do not really have too much of a purpose. It might seem cool that you can click on them to be taken to a product page, but at the same time, it seems like more work doing that than going to the product page itself.
Either way, this is definitely a new addition to the camera feed option that some people might enjoy. It seems like this is just for the Amazon iOS app currently, so we do not know if this new stickers feature will be coming to the Android app anytime soon. If you want to check out the new stickers feature, you can download the new version of the Amazon iOS app right now. This app is free and available through Apple’s App Store if you do not already have the Amazon iOS app on your iOS device.
