Look inside your Amazon package without opening it


A new feature introduced in its iPhone app.

Amazon quietly introduced a feature in its iPhone app that will let you see the contents of a box without opening it. Called the ‘Package X Ray’ feature, you can use the camera feature from the iPhone app that would let you scan a barcode from your package and it will instantly tell you the contents of the box.

It’s not exactly Superman’s x-ray vision, but it is a cool way for you to identify products even before you open them – though it may somehow ruin a surprise if someone unknowingly scans it. It also goes to show the amount of organization Amazon needs to properly document its inventories.

The Amazon app is a free download for iOS and Android devices.
