If you don’t feel like cooking dinner, you can now ask Alexa to order food from Grubhub.
On Wednesday. Amazon announced a partnership with food delivery service Grubhub that will let users order food by taking to Alexa. To get started, you’ll need to link your Grubhub account to Amazon, then you can say things like, “Alexa, open Grubhub” or “Alexa, tell Grubhub I’m hungry.” The feature is currently only available to previously made orders, so it won’t work if you’re trying to order a new item from the menu. Alexa will then provide a list of previous orders, so you can decide what you want to order for dinner.
“Ordering meals with only your voice is one of the more popular capabilities on Alexa. Customers love how convenient it is to simply ask Alexa to place an order for delivery,” said Rob Pulciani director Amazon Alexa in a statement. “I’m excited that customers can now reorder from Grubhub’s network of 50,000-plus restaurants, giving them even more choices as to where their next breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack will come from.”
The Grubhub skill for Alexa, is available for those with an Amazon Alexa device such as the Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Tap.
