Amazon releases surprise and virtual Dash Buttons

According to Amazon, their Dash buttons have been a big hit with customers, so now the company is trying two new things with them. First, there is a new Surprise Sweets Dash button, that when pressed, will order you a box containing a “selection of multiple small-batch treats crafted by artisans from across the nation.” Each box costs $18 and there is no way to know what will arrive, hence the surprise, but Amazon has shown off several example boxes to get an idea of what may arrive. To get one of the new surprise buttons, you have to request an invitation.

The second new addition to Dash buttons is the release of virtual buttons on Amazon’s website and mobile app. The virtual Dash buttons, like their physical counterparts, can be configured to order a specific product when pressed. While they don’t add nearly as much convenience as the physical buttons, they may be worth setting up to save you a few clicks for products you order often.
