If you’re hungry for some pancakes, Amazon’s Alexa has your back.
The restaurant chain Denny’s announced on Wednesday that you can now use Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant to order food through its Denny’s On Demand service. Those who use Amazon’s Alexa on a variety of devices, including the company’s line of smart home Echo devices, can enable the feature for free. Users can then input their Denny’s on Demand account and payment information through the Alexa “skill” and place an order.
Once it’s all set up, users can activate Alexa on an Echo and speak their orders of pancakes, eggs, and anything else they want from Denny’s. Payments will be processed automatically and their orders will be sent to a local Denny’s restaurant. Amazon’s Alexa will alert users to an estimated time when their Denny’s order will be available for pickup.
