The home is evolving slowly but surely thanks to the sophistication of technology today, which is allowing for such developments as the connected fridge. As the Internet of Things continues to be integrated in everyday life in order to make it more efficient and effortless, such appliances will continue to be updated as a result.

Tech Crunch lists off a couple of immediate ways in which the connected fridge is already made possible such as with Amazon’s Alexa and Groceries by MasterCard. As written on Tech Crunch, "With a connected fridge, advertisers will pay to promote products to the consumer on the refrigerator’s screen, who will then use a related subscription-based service to buy the products. What makes promotion like this appealing to advertisers is that it’s data-driven, personalized and proactive."
