If you own an Alexa-powered device, there’s now even less of a chance that you’ll go hungry.
Amazon has given its Alexa voice assistant the ability to place food delivery orders from businesses affiliated with Amazon Restaurants. To expedite the service, Alexa will only be able to re-order from a restaurant or type of cuisine you’ve ordered from in the past. This is the latest perk being offered to Amazon Prime members who own an Alexa-powered device like an Amazon Tap, Amazon Echo, or Echo Dot.
Alexa is able to place restaurant delivery orders for Prime members in over 20 cities, as part of Prime Now, the Amazon service that offers same-day delivery. After enabling the Amazon Restaurants skill, Prime members can initiate a food delivery order by saying, “Alexa, order from Amazon Restaurants.”
