Customers will be able to make Walmart purchases through Google Express
Google and Walmart have strengthened their partnership on e-commerce. Starting in late September, customers will be able to make Walmart purchases through Google Express, a platform where customers can buy and set up delivery from stores like Target and Walgreens. Google also announced changes to Google Express to better compete with Amazon Prime. The partnership between Google and Walmart represents a real test for Amazon. Walmart items will also be available through Google’s artificial intelligence interfaces, Google Assistant and Google Home smart speaker, which competes with Amazon’s Echo, the market leader for voice-controlled devices.
