Amazon announces first devices available with Dash Replenishment
Amazon has announced the first devices that are available with Amazon Dash Replenishment. In an official statement posted on its US Amazon.com website today (19 January), Amazon said the devices include select Brother printers, a GE washer, and the Gmate SMART blood glucose monitor.
Dash Replenishment Service enables connected devices to automatically order physical goods fromAmazon when supplies are running low. The Brother printer, for example, will be able to order toner or ink when it’s needed.
Amazon said that customers who already own a compatible Brother printer can start taking advantage of Dash Replenishment immediately, and the General Electric washer and Gmate device will be ready by the end of the month. “There is no need to buy a new device,” added Amazon, “just sign up to activate Amazon Dash Replenishment.”
The company also reported that new brands and devices have joined the Dash Replenishment program, including Purell soap and hand sanitizer and the Whirlpool Smart Dishwasher.
“With Amazon Dash Replenishment, we want to make customers’ lives even easier so they won’t run out of items like laundry detergent, pet food or printer ink again—customers simply activate Dash Replenishment when they are setting up their connected device and then rely on Amazon to automatically deliver those everyday essentials,” said Daniel Rausch, Director, Amazon Devices. “It’s exciting to make Dash Replenishment a reality—customers can start taking advantage of the service today and we will continue to launch and add new devices to the program this year.”
Don Cummins, SVP Marketing, Brother, added: “Brother has over 45 models immediately compatible with Amazon Dash Replenishment, making it easy for our users to automatically have their ink or toner replenished when they need it.”
