"You have to be pretty desperate to hand over your vehicle keys just to get a few hours quicker delivery", wrote another Twitter poster.

Amazon never ceases to surprise us, and perhaps this in-car delivery will expand beyond your driveway or office parking lot.

Amazon Prime members can now have their Amazon orders delivered directly into their auto through Amazon Key, the company announced in a Tuesday press release.

Amazon Key In-Car allows members of Amazon's Prime subscription service with compatible vehicles receive in-car delivery for no extra cost.

This new service is available to Amazon Prime members and is connected to the Amazon Key service that the company recently launched.

Amazon on Tuesday said that it's expanding its Amazon Key in-home delivery service to customers' cars. After all, some experts say, many drivers now pay parking meters using an app on their phones, and rely on navigational services that know their location at any given time.

On delivery day, the Amazon Key App lets customers check if they've parked within range of the delivery location, and provides notifications with the expected 4-hour delivery time window.

Remember last October where it was rumored that Amazon wanted to deliver your packages to the inside of your auto? Now, Amazon is offering to drop off packages straight to the trunk of your parked vehicle.

Once the driver is standing next to the auto, they tap on the app and it opens the locks.

Delivering packages inside instead of leaving them on your porch should cut down on theft, although Amazon Key requires a certain level of trust.

Amazon already wants to leave packages in your home when you aren't there with Amazon Key, and now the company is expanding that to your auto. Just last week Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said Prime memberships had topped 100 million. The owner can also track when the vehicle was unlocked and relocked in the app's activity feed. "How do they expect to find and unlock the trunk of my vehicle?" wrote one on Twitter. Next they just need to ideal anticipating what we want to buy and have it waiting in our living room or trunk before we place the order. The vehicle has to be parked within the radius of the of address used for deliveries.

Another customer said it helped him keep personal and business orders separate by giving him another delivery site. And each time a delivery driver requests access to the customer's auto, it's done through an encrypted authentication process, the release said.
