Amazon Alexa can now order products from Prime Now

You can now order Prime Now products for same-day delivery using Amazon Alexa. Tens of thousands of daily essentials and other items are available for delivery in as little as two hours, and all you have to do is say, “Alexa, order from Prime Now.”

With Prime Now support, Alexa can order multiple items for same delivery, and make recommendations for your shop. It then automatically chooses the next available two-hour delivery window and has Amazon bring your purchases directly to your door. The retail giant calls it the fastest and easiest way to shop.

“Bringing Prime Now to Alexa voice shopping combines two of the most innovative shopping technologies available for an experience that our customers are going to wonder how they ever lived without,” said Assaf Ronen, Vice President of Voice Shopping.

“We’re excited to offer the full Prime Now catalogue with Alexa, including tens of thousands of items, which allows you to refill everyday essentials you’ve just run out of like diapers or dish soap, or cater to unexpected guests with merlot and ice cream, all without ever leaving your house or even getting up from the couch.”

The functionality is available on all Alexa-powered speakers, including the Echo, Echo Dot, and Tap — plus Amazon devices like the Fire Tablet and Fire TV.

What’s more, Amazon is also making cold beer, wine, and spirits available through Prime Now in select cities starting today. That means your next great house party won’t die prematurely when you run out of booze.
