OK Google!

Google Home is Google’s voice activated speaker (like Amazon’s Echo!). Say ‘OK Google’ to turn it on! You can actually use Google voice activated apps on Android phones by saying ‘OK Google’! This is Google’s version of Amazon’s Alexa. 

Google Express is Google’s online shopping venture. Google Express has just tied up with the giant shopping chain Walmart, so that Walmart products can be bought on Google Express. There are Walmart stores all across America and actually on most continents as well! Google Express is also tied into Google Home, so that when you run out of something that you buy from Walmart, you can tell Google Home to order it for you. Google Home keeps track of the brands that you buy through Walmart so that you only need to tell it once. After that, you can say: “OK Google! Buy me some toilet paper.” and it will know which one to order for you.

This alliance between Google and Walmart means that Google Home users get access to a lot more products than those available on Google Express. And Walmart gets a great online shopping platform. This, of course, puts Google and Walmart in direct competition with Amazon!
