Walmart and Google continue to nip at Amazon's heels. Look out Alexa!

Last Update: August 25, 2017

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.

That certainly will be interesting to watch the big box and the "unbox" fight it out!

saw that on the news. very smart move on their part. In June I was talking to a potential career coaching client that was starting to train with WalMart to manage their online grocery department so this has been in the works for a while---that's what you call niche marketing because there's a lot of shut-ins who can't get to the store to do their own shopping

I'm looking forward to how the Whole Foods/Amazon deal is going to impact the market. Amazon just announce that they are going to cut the cost of staples like meat and eggs.
