Carrefour and Google unite to do their shopping by voice

Thanks to a partnership signed with Carrefour in 2018, Google has just launched a new service based on its voice assistant. The firm now offers to do its food shopping from A to Z using voice, smartphone, speaker and connected screen.

With containment, many retail chains have improved their online shopping services , as well as drive and home delivery. In a new innovation only in France, Google has partnered with Carrefour to integrate their different services. Now users can use Google’s voice assistant to do their shopping by voice.

This new feature combines the Google Assistant shopping list with online ordering at Carrefour. The process starts by creating a list with the voice command ”  OK Google , I want to do the shopping  “. Then just indicate the products to buy, without needing to be specific (milk, eggs, cereals …). It is also possible to share the list with other family members. So everyone can add their own products.

The assistant automatically selects your favorite products

The creation of the shopping list with the voice assistant already existed, but the novelty comes next. When all the items have been added, just say ”  I’m done  “. The assistant then proposes to link his Carrefour account. Once done, it retrieves the products from the shopping list based on previous purchases and the best-selling items.

The user reviews the order and can delete items or choose from other suggestions. It only remains to validate the payment and choose between the drive, the pedestrian drive or home delivery. The service is available on all devices with the Google Assistant: smartphones, speakers and connected screens. Google will now know everything you eat. We can already imagine diet suggestions
