Google Home is not that different from Amazon’s Echo. It is a speaker that acts quickly to voice commands, and populates your shopping list, answers all of your questions, and does a lot more.

Instead of purchasing things through Amazon prime as would happen with Echo, Google Home orders go through Google express instead. And while Google express has a membership fee or per-delivery charge, Google is waiving those cost for purchases made with home through April 30th. This means you have a delivery free pass if you order your stuff via Google Home.

Now, your Google Home can order a variety of stuff from sites such as Toys R Us, Costco, or Walgreen’s through Google express. That makes things much easier for you and you can always shop without taking that time-consuming trip to the local store.  Better yet, Google Home will probably see a lot of additions in the coming weeks or months.

Google express has an Android app and an IOS app and is available on the respective play stores. It is quite easy to use and looks like any shopping site. It lets you order household staples through the Home speaker.

Commands like “ok Google, order wet towels” will have home list of matching price and products. By saying ‘yes’ it will place the order with assistant providing a confirmation. On the other hand ‘No’ will only list more suggestions.

Before shopping with Google Home, you are required to set up default address and payment method. Right to the settings menu of the Home app you will be able to see new options for payment under the Google account section. By clicking it,  it will take you through a series of steps that enables you store debit or credit cards that can only be accessed by Google Assistant.

Payments options can be accessed in Google Home or through Google app by navigating to “more settings”. Either method will take you through entering default credit card details and shipping address. And you are ready to shop!
