Because it comes integrated with the personal assistant, the Dash Wand lets you do a lot more than just order from Amazon with your voice.

Users push the button on Dash Wand and either say what they need or scan the barcode on a specific product. The new Dash Wand is made of black and white plastic and created to sit comfortably in your hand, or magnetically attach to the fridge when not in use. Scanned items can be placed in a shopping cart and purchased with a smartphone later.

Yes, the Dash Wand is not only a robust hardware device but has also bagged an impressive update on the software front, courtesy of the Alexa integration. If you're on AmazonFresh, this one is ideal to use so you can easily and quickly reorder everyday stuff from your favorite e-commerce website. It places a device in your kitchen you'll get used to ordering with direct from Amazon. As a part of an expansion into the line-up of Alexa-enabled devices, the e-commerce giant released an updated Dash Wand for users. This means you can also employ the Dash Wand to control your connected home devices - but it does not support playing music - which would've been a fun little addition.

The Dash Wand was announced today in its own product page on Amazon's website.

For now, the new Amazon Dash Wand is available only to Amazon Prime members in the United States, but it should expand its availability later on.
