Need a grocery restock? Just ask. No, really—all you have to do is say the words and you’ll have food delivered to your door with the new Walmart Voice Order function on your Google Assistant.
Walmart has partnered with Google to roll out a new shopping feature that allows customers to place grocery orders via Google Assistant using nothing more than their voice. Mid-bath time when you remember you’re out of diapers? No problem. Just say, “Hey Google, talk to Walmart,” and you can add diapers to your cart without leaving the bathroom.

With Google Assistant available across multiple platforms and devices you can easily access the function no matter where you are using your phone, smartwatch, Google Home Hub or other Google Assistant-enabled devices.
The Walmart Voice Order function will be able to learn your orders, which means that you can say “add milk to my cart” and the app will know that you specifically mean “1 gallon of 1% Great Value organic milk,” based on your prior purchasing history. The more you order, the more it will learn.
Customers can save their purchases in their cart until they’re ready to check out, which means you can build your grocery list throughout the week and then simply purchase when you’re ready. Customers then have the option of delivery or grocery pick up. So you basically never have to set foot in a grocery store with a tantrum-ing toddler ever again.
The new Walmart Voice Order feature will roll out to customers across the country over the next few weeks.
