NEW YORK, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seamless, the food ordering and delivery platform that is an integral part of how New Yorkers eat, has launched its Reorder with Seamless Alexa skill. The new integration makes it easier for Seamless customers to reorder food -- using only their voice -- from its network of more than 50,000 restaurants nationwide. This number includes more than 11,000 restaurants in the Greater New York City area.
The Seamless skill for Alexa is available for all Seamless diners who have an Alexa-enabled device such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV, or Fire tablet, and provides a convenient voice-ordering experience. Diners will be able to ask Alexa to recite their past three orders and reorder one of these meals from a favorite local restaurant.
"We're always evolving the ordering process to adapt to the 'on-the-go' lifestyle of our busy New York diners," said Sudev Balakrishnan, senior vice president of product, Grubhub. "The new Alexa skill will delight diners with the added convenience of quickly reordering some of their favorite meals, using only their voice."
How it works:
- Diners enable the Seamless skill and link to their Seamless account using the Alexa app
- Diners open the Seamless skill for Alexa using a selection of prompts such as, "Alexa, open Seamless" or, "Alexa, tell Seamless I'm hungry"
- Alexa will respond with, "Welcome to Seamless! Here are the latest orders available for reorder"
- Diners can then choose the option they would like to reorder
- Alexa places the order for the diner and provides an estimated delivery time
The reorder skill for Alexa will be available to all Seamless users who have an Alexa-enabled device. For more on the Seamless skill for Alexa, please visit seamless.com/alexa.
