Just in time for the holidays, you can now shop the deal of the day at Best Buy just by talking to Alexa.
Best Buy customers now can learn about and order Best Buy’s Deal of the Day products via their Amazon Alexa devices just by saying “Alexa, talk to Best Buy.” Voice shoppers can also buy from a tailored list of recommendations based on their needs.
To use this new feature, simply add the Best Buy skill to your Alexa device via the Alexa app skill store, log in with your Best Buy account, say “Alexa, talk to Best Buy” and you’re ready to shop.
Best Buy is joining the trend of retailers adding voice shopping, and have added Amazon Alexa and Google Home experiences in their 700 stores earlier this year. Best Buy also rolled out voice services with Google Home in Canada last month, letting users hear sales, learn more about various products, and find their nearby store via the Google Assistant.
Best Buy’s partnership is an odd one, given Amazon’s aggressive moves in electronic sales. Amazon accounted for a whopping 90% of the $5.6 billion growth in consumer electronics sales posted nationwide in 2015, according to Deutsche Bank analysts last year.
