Alexa orders delivery from Pizza Hut on Amazon devices

Ordering pizza from your phone is so 2015.

Pizza Hut recently debuted a chatbot to help you with a delivery order, but the restaurant chain is putting Amazon's virtual assistant to work for the same task. Alexa's newest skill includes the ability to order your pizza via voice integration on the Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV and Fire tablets. While the menu options for placing an order from scratch are a bit limited, Alexa can access your favorite items and past orders as well.

The pizza chain says you'll be able to use Alexa to place an order starting December 15th. When the time comes, all you'll have to do it say "Alexa, open Pizza Hut" or "Alexa, ask Pizza Hut for a pizza" to start the process. Pizza Hut has been giving customers alternate methods for ordering for quite some time, including an app for Xbox in case hunger overtakes you mid-game. Earlier this year, the company also debuted the so-called Visual Promise Time tool that lets you know when your food will arrive before you place an order.
