Amazon's Alexa Can Order Domino's With New Voice Recognition
Domino's is really stepping up their game when it comes to offering customers innovative menu items and user experiences. In their most recent innovation, the company has teamed up with Amazon to allow customers to order Domino's pizza using their Alexa device. However, this new feature will only be available to users in the UK.
I didn't mean to bum you out! This feature will come to the U.S. soon, but until then, let's learn a little more about how Alexa helps people order Domino's pizza across the pond.
How to enable ordering?
To use Amazon's Alexa for ordering Domino's pizza, all you have to do is set up an Easy Order account on Domino's UK website. Then, you hop onto your Alexa App and enable the Domino's Skill. After that's done, you link your Domino's account with your Alexa account and get to ordering.
NGL, those are quite a few steps, but they seem worth it for easy pizza ordering.
What commands does Alexa react to?
There are a series of commands that Alexa responds to when you wish to order a pizza.
You can say, “Alexa, ask Domino's to feed me” when you are ordering your 'za, but there's no word on whether or not she asks your pizza preferences. You can also say, “Alexa, ask Domino's to track my order” to know what your pizza is up to every step of the way.
Finally, you can say, “Alexa, ask Domino's where my pizza is” to learn how far away your pizza is. But this feature only works if your restaurant is a GPS store participant.
Domino's has already allowed users to order pizza via text, Twitter, and Facebook Messenger, so it was only a matter of time before they really made ordering 'za really easy.
If you're in the UK, own an Amazon Echo, and decide to order Domino's using your device, make sure to ask for cheese and sauce and not end up like the infamous mom who ordered her pizza without it.
