Veteran IT journalist Stacey Higginbotham reports that Walmart suppliers are being asked to ensure that their products are compatible with Google Home:
“Clearly, Walmart now wants to support Google Home as a competitor to Amazon’s Echo and Alexa ecosystem. We saw Walmart offer impressive discounts on Google Minis during Amazon’s “Prime Day” discounting event in July, and my hunch is we’ll see similar deals in the smart home arena bundling Google Home devices with other smart home products for this year’s holiday season.”
P.S. As Walmart develops alliances with other brands, supplier standards and requirements may change. Are you ready to roll with Walmart’s changes? Our team of experts can help! Book an appointment today.
