A partnership between Google Express and Walmart will let shoppers compile shopping lists using the voice-enabled Google Assistant

With Amazon giving their customers voice access to online shopping with Alexa devices, Google decided to partner with other supermarket chains to make its competing service, Google Express, a higher quality experience. The search giant has now partnered with Walmart, giving the retailer the largest selection on the service.

Google Express can be accessed through a device with the Google Assistant program, like Google Home. Using voice commands, a customer can compile their shopping list while the program adds them to an online shopping cart. If the customer chooses to pick up the items in store, they receive a discount. Customers who have an account with Walmart can link it to their Google account to make shopping that much quicker and to ensure they receive their preferred brands.

Google Express also works with 50 different retailers, including Target and Costco. The Walmart partnership will launch in late September.
