Kroger offering new way to order groceries

Soon you could be able to order your Kroger groceries just by asking your Google assistant.

Kroger is rolling out voice-activated grocery service for Kroger Grocery Pickup, formerly called ClickList, according to a post on the company’s Linkedin.

The Google Assistant is available on most major operating systems including iOS for iPhone, Android and Google Assistant devices.

So far the service has launched across Fred Meyer, Fry’s Food and Drug, QFC, King Soopers/City Market and Ralphs Grocery Company brands with more Kroger-branded banners coming out during the rest of 2018 and 2019.

To order, shoppers will be able to say: “Hey Google, talk to Kroger.”

From there, the Google Assistant will allow customers to add items to their cart.

Voice activated grocery services are growing in popularity thanks to the race to keep up with Amazon, including Amazon’s Alexa devices.
