Google Assistant adds shopping
Friday February 17 2017
Google is adding a retail shopping option to its Google assistant - the companys rival to Amazon Alexa
From today in the US, you can shop for everyday essentials from participating Google Express retailers including Costco, Whole Foods Market, Walgreens, PetSmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and more than 50 other national and locally available retailers.
Prior to activating the voice shopping option, first-time users go to the Google Home app, navigate to “More settings” and then scroll down to “Payments” to set a default credit card and delivery address.
