Walmart and Google continue to nip at Amazon's heels. Look out Alexa!
Walmart is going for a bigger online presence by acquiring online companies such as Jet.com and Hayneedle.com. You can get free two day shipping without having a membership. And now they are offering voice shopping with Google Assistant and Home. Delivery will be free through Google Express.
Walmart and Google are aligning together to go up against Amazon's huge smart speaker market share. According to an NPR survey, Google Home has a 16 percent share compared to Amazon's 76 percent.
It's going to be interesting and fun to see how all of this plays out. Hopefully the competition will be a big win for consumers.
