Snapchat lets you take a photo of an object to buy it on Amazon

In a rare partnership for Amazon, the commerce giant will help Snapchat challenge Instagram and Pinterest for social shopping supremacy. Today Snapchat announced it's slowly rolling out a new visual product search feature, confirming TechCrunch's July scoop about this project codenamed "Eagle". Users can use Snapchat's camera to scan a physical object or barcode which brings up a card showing that item and similar ones along with their title, price, thumbnail image, average review score and Prime availability.
