People have been able to order products from their Amazon Alexa enabled devices for some time now, it’s just one of the many features that Amazon has had over other smart home devices, however, that won’t last very long.
Today Google announced some updates to their Google Home devices, allowing users to order products right from their Google Home device with a set of voice commands.
It works pretty much the same as any other command, you say what you want and Home will do it.
Google did explain more about it with the following statement:
What do you need to get done today? If picking up paper towels or stocking up on coffee is on your list, consider it done. To help you keep up with your busy schedule and shop for the things you need, we’re introducing shopping with your Google Assistant on Google Home.
Starting today, you can shop for your everyday essentials—from paper towels to vitamins. You’ll be able to order from participating Google Express retailers, including Costco, Whole Foods Market, Walgreens, PetSmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and more than 50 other national and locally available retailers.
