How to set-up the new smart speaker you got for Christmas
Despite the perks, it's not clear how many of Amazon's millions of new Prime members will stick around. As one quick example, Amazon notes that customers ordered more than 1,400 electronic products per second via mobile devices during the recent holiday shopping season.
A Google spokesperson made a statement regarding its battle with Amazon stating that since Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, nor does it make Prime Video available for GoogleCast users, Google is no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV, 'given this lack of reciprocity'. The holiday season was also a boon for Amazon'sPrime membership program. The top three items ordered via mobile were the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote and the TP-Link Smart Plug, according to Amazon. Small businesses and entrepreneurs who sell their products on Amazon's platform accounted for almost 140 million items that were ordered.
In 2017, Amazon increased the size of its fulfillment and shipping network by more than 30% in square footage worldwide. Another tidbit is that the peak day of customer fulfillment this past year was on December 19. "Thank you to the millions of customers and hundreds of thousands of Amazon employees all around the world who made this holiday better than ever before".
Mobile shopping helped push Amazon sales: Customers shopping on the Amazon App increased almost 70%, and more than 1,400 electronics products were ordered per second on a mobile device this holiday season, the company said.
