Walmart announced something that can make your shopping easier. It is called Walmart Voice Order. It will be rolled out to more and more customers over the next few weeks.
Beginning this month, customers can say, “Hey Google, talk to Walmart” and the Google Assistant will add items directly to their Walmart Grocery cart. Best of all, customers can be extra confident that Walmart can quickly and accurately identify the items they are asking for with the help of information from their prior purchases with Walmart. The more you use it, the better it will get.
Let’s say that your family likes the Great Value (Walmart Brand) 1% milk. After you use Google Assistant to add items to your Walmart Grocery cart long enough, it will learn what you like to buy. After that, when you tell Google Assistant “add milk to my cart”, it will know that you want it to add a gallon of Great Value 1% milk.
Google Assistant is available on more than a billion devices, including Smart Displays like Google Home Hub, Android phones, iPhones, watches and more. Customers can manage their shopping carts while they’re at home or on the go.
Walmart has learned that when using voice technology, customers like to add items to their carts one at a time over a few days. They don’t complete their shopping list for the week all at once. The “Hey Google, talk to Walmart” skill is capable of allowing customers to add items to their Walmart Grocery cart a little at a time.
Walmart is kicking off this service with Google Assistant, but is planning to add others to the mix as time goes on. If your family buys the same foods, from the same brands, every week – Google Assistant can help you save time while filling your Walmart Grocery cart.
