Walmart launches Voice Order via Google Assistant

Thursday 4 April 2019 | 11:52 AM CET

Walmart has launched a limited beta of Walmart Voice Order, which lets consumers order groceries by voice using Google Assistant.

The service can be used with the following devices:

  • tablets, watches and TV sets running Android 6.0+

  • smartphones running Android 5.0+

  • iOS 10.0+ devices

  • Google Home

  • headphones

  • chromebook

  • smart displays.

When a customer says, "Hey Google, talk to Walmart," and states a product name, the Google Assistant will add the item directly to the shopper's Walmart Grocery cart. Machine learning will let Google Assistant improve with usage.

This rollout is part of Walmart's focus on technology to support its ecommerce and omnichannel operations.
