Walmart and Google Assistant
Google announced a partnership with Walmart that enables shoppers using Google Assistant at home to order from Walmart using voice activation. Consumers can link their Walmart account to their Google account and access the voice activation that way, but by linking the accounts, the Google user also has access to Walmart products when shopping through Google Express. Shoppers will also get personalized offers and products based on their behavior. Google and Walmart announced the partnership on their respective blogs, and Walmart said it is the largest provider of products on the Google platform. Shoppers can have products shipped to their home or use the voice activation to request in-store pickup.
