Using a voice activated speaker to do your shopping is becoming more popular, which is exactly what companies like Amazon were hoping would happen. Currently, Google Home users can shop with their device for products from companies that are connected with Google Express. Google Express features companies like Target, Costco, and Walgreens. And now, Walmart will be a part of Google Express by the end of September. Also, Google Express is dropping its membership fee in an attempt to generate more participation.
Walmart will also make its easy reordering feature available for people using their Google Home. So, you will be able to order things from Walmart that you have ordered in the past without having to specify a size or brand name. For example; you can say, “Ok Google, order peanut butter from Walmart,” and you will not have to state the brand or size if it is something that you have added to your reordering list from Walmart. Google Home users will also get free two day shipping from Walmart if their order is over $35.
