Need something at Best Buy? Just tell Alexa and she'll get it for you. 

This week, Best Buy announced it launched a new voice shopping feature. That means you can shop the store's Deal of the Day, as well as a bunch of other products. 

Just add the Best Buy skill to your Alexa device via the Alexa app or Alexa skill store, log in with your Best Buy account, say “Alexa, talk to Best Buy” and shop away. 

Best Buy started playing around with voice technology in Canada last month. It's been using Google Homes there to let users hear sales, learn more about various products, and find nearby stores. 

Last month, Target announced it was teaming up with Google to offer voice shopping. Just go through Google Assistant – which is available using Google Home devices or Android TVs – and say "Google, buy _______ from Target," and it will place your order, charge your saved card and get delivery going.

Walmart also offers voice services through Google Assistant. According to CNET, Google tends to be more popular among the retailers since Amazon is such a big rival.
