In order to put their foot into the home assistant genre of technology, the Mountain View company released Google Home. More than just a fancy Bluetooth speaker, Google Home comes with Google Assistant integration, which connects the cute little smart home device to the larger Android ecosystem.

If you are among the early adopters of the IOT technology and have Google Home to control it all, you’ll be glad to know that you can use it now for shopping as well. While the service is currently limited to Google Express, it is expected to reach out to several more vendors across the country.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Set up payments for Google Home

Before you can begin your shopping spree, you need to set up the payment options on Google Home. Using your Android device, open the Google Home app and tap on the three-line menu on the top-right corner and tap on “More settings”.

In the new window, you can scroll down to find the “Payments” tab, so open it and tap on “Get Started” to begin the setup of adding your payment credentials to the Google Home device.

Unless you have a default mode of payment set up, you will need to “Add credit to debit card” and “Add new address” to complete the process. If you have multiple addresses or payment modes set up on your account, the final window will also ask you to select the default options as well.

Voila! You can now go ahead and make payment with Google Home across more than 50 outlets across the United States. If you have anything to add to this post or want to share your shopping experience with Google Now, share in the comments section below.
