In Brief

As an extension of an existing Alexa capability, now hungry consumers can make and repeat full food orders by voice command, optimizing the AI assistant's usefulness and enabling seamless delivery

Amazon’s Alexa has changed the way consumers order products online, and is now even making it easier for them to have food delivered to their house. While last year Amazon and foodora released an Alexa capability that allowed customers to track their orders, this new technology will allow users to place their order via the voice assistant as well.

Food delivery is a highly competitive field and hungry shoppers want to be able to order in the most convenient way. For millennials, this often involves not having to speak with a live representative. foodora users simply enter their information into the app and are set to order. The capability implements voice-recognition technology that allows users to refer to restaurants by name and say phrases like ‘Repeat my order from last Thursday. Ultimately, this service functions to increase Alexa’s usefulness to consumers, helping enable a seamless delivery experience.
