Submission + - Google Home gets shop-by-voice (betanews.com)

BrianFagioli writes: One alternative to Amazon's solution is Google Home. The search-giant's device is essentially the same concept as Echo — an always-listening assistant ready to serve you. Today, Google announces that its assistant-focused device is gaining a really great new feature — shopping. Consumers can leverage their voices to buy goods — no need to go to their laptop or smartphone.

"Starting today, you can shop for your everyday essentials — from paper towels to vitamins. You'll be able to order 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. To get started, just say 'Ok Google, how do I shop?' or 'Ok Google, order paper towels'." says David Wang and Larry Adams, Product Managers, Google.
