Google and Walmart are testing the notion that an enemy's enemy is a friend.
Walmart and Google plan to roll out more voice shopping innovations in the next year, including the ability to buy groceries via voice and then have them delivered or pick them up at one of Walmart's 4,690 USA stores. It has also started to deliver groceries in some cities via partnerships with cab-hailing services Uber and Lyft.
On the side of Google, the competition group already directly to the assistant domestic Echo of Amazon with its own Google Home.
For Walmart, introducing a voice-ordered feature may pique some customers' interest - but it won't close the deep e-commerce gap that yawns between it and Amazon. This service replaced Walmart's existing two-day shipping program named "Shipping Pass" that charged shoppers an annual membership fee of $49 and competed strongly with Amazon's Prime shipping program, which charges customers $99 a year for two-day shipping with additional features like a streaming video service. And previous year, Walmart acquired Amazon competitor Jet.com, paying $3.3 billion. The initiative is quite innovative and smart, as shopping by voice is becoming increasingly more popular.
While this type of voice-activated shopping is still in its relative infancy, it's growing fast, and experts expect it to play a big role in the future of online retail.
"We know this means being compared side by-side with other retailers, and we think that's the way it should be", Lore writes. "An open and transparent shopping universe is good for customers", said Lore.
