Snapchat just announced a new feature that lets users search for products on Amazon. Point a camera at the object you desire, touch it on the screen, and Snapchat will attempt to open the corresponding Amazon page for the product via the Amazon app. The scanner works with barcodes too, and Snapchat says the feature is "beginning this week." While the visual product search is remarkable, Snapchat isn't the first social media company to try and integrate their app with shopping services, and they probably won't be the last.
