Walmart is all set to renew its rivalry with Amazon, this time with Google on its side.
Walmart is one of the most popular and known corporate giant in the U.S. which is teaming up with Google to provide Voice Assistant service to make your shopping more easier.
Soon with the help of Google, Walmart's customers will have the ability to order thousands of products via their voice. Amazon has its own Voice Assistant named with Amazon Alexa and with this collaboration, people will be able to shop more conveniently by using Google's AI. Google Express already offers products from a variety of stores, such as TargetTGT and Whole Foods WFM.

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 US stores. Amazon customers like that the Echo can make recommendations based on their Amazon order histories, but the site doesn't have information on what users buy in physical stores.
