Sleep talkers beware: Alexa is listening for your restaurant reorders
Amazon Prime members can now voice-order meals through Amazon Restaurants on Alexa-enabled devices, including Amazon's Echo or Dot. Customers can reorder from any of the service's restaurants for free delivery of any previously ordered meal in an hour or less, according to a news release
"Customers now have a hands-free, hassle-free way to reorder any meal from Amazon Restaurants using their voice to get dinner on the table," Amazon Restaurants General Manager Gus Lopez, said in a news release. "We are excited to leverage the innovative Alexa technology and give Prime members another easy way for Amazon Restaurants to take care of dinnertime with no menu markups and free delivery in one hour or less."
Prime members can order simply by asking Alexa to reorder by restaurant name or cuisine. The service pulls a customer's order history from a restaurant or cuisine type and lists meal options available for reorder. The meal is then sent for delivery to that customer's default address.
Amazon delivery partners deliver orders to Prime members at no additional cost in one hour or less, according to the release.
