Best Buy Announces Voice Ordering with Amazon’s Alexa

Best Buy announced that customers can now learn about and order Best Buy Deal of the Day products on Amazon’s Alexa device.  People are also able to buy from a tailored list of recommendations that are based on their needs and taken from Best Buy’s full assortment of laptops and TVs.

With voice ordering growing as a new technology trend, Best Buy has added Amazon Alexa and Google Home experiences in about 700 stores this year.

To use the feature, all customers have to do is add the Best Buy skill,  to the Alexa device via the Alexa app or Alexa skill store,  log in with the Best Buy account, say,  “Alexa talk to Best Buy.”

Best Buy started with Google Home last month in Canada and it lets users hear sales, learn more about products, and find their nearby store.
