Walmart Voice Order works across Google Assistant-powered platforms, including smart speakers and displays, and is set to take on Amazon's grocery services

Superstore Walmart is partnering with Google to enable a voice ordering system. Called Walmart Voice Order, the service will work with all Google Assistant devices, even including smartwatches.

This intuitive tech will remember consumers' brand preferences from their order history, will establish an automatically reoccurring order, and give customers prices and item descriptions when products are added to the list. This way, shoppers won't have to dictate the entire brand name to order their favorites—they can simply say “milk,” and the tech will know which kind to order based on their history.

To activate the shopping feature, shoppers just need to tell their Google Assistant “Ok Google, talk to Walmart.” While currently the service is intended to be more of an ‘add-as-you-go' app, helping customers round up their items as they occur to them, which is how consumers are building their lists and shopping today. Furthermore, it is designed to compete with Amazon's capabilities across its Alexa and Echo devices.
