FLOTUS hits back at Ivana Trump's 'first lady comment'

In the future, Google details that more features will come, such as the ability to add your REDcard to Google Express to receive 5% off most Target orders, plus free shipping. In addition, in 2018, Target shoppers will be able to link their Target.com and Google accounts, so the service will remember all their favorite items. "Work is underway for Google and Target teams to bring this all to life".

Target is significantly expanding its partnership with Google, offering customers voice-directed ordering through a Google Home device or an Android TV - and soon through any Android phone or iPhone - and two-day delivery nationwide via Google Express.

The voice-activated ordering is now available in Panera's hometown of St. Louis and at its six locations in the Silicon Valley area. Even Apple has one coming out this year. But a store's omnichannel strategy has become more complex and competitive, so partnering with an enterprise-scale digital player becomes a necessity to provide more mobile-driven services such as on-demand merchandise delivery or mobile order and pay.
