Amazon Discontinues The Dash Button
Amazon's rather strange little Dash buttons are no more as the company has announced they are discontinuing the Dash Buttons.
These tiny little buttons allowed customers to reorder products with just the press of a button. It was especially useful for purchasing regular household items like laundry detergent, toilet paper, or maybe milk.
Amazon believes that the need for Dash buttons has been replaced by the use of their Alexa voice assistant which is now built into more devices than ever.
If users own a dash button, they will continue to work, but you can't buy any new ones going forward.
It should be noted that Amazon was recently under fire in Germany as the Dash buttons were ruled to violate the countries consumer protection laws. This along with possibly low user growth and utilization could have made the decision for Amazon to discontinue the product easy.
