For the past few years, Target has been testing the Google Express service in California and New York City. Now, the service is expanding nationwide. Starting today, you can now use Google's same-day home delivery service at Targets all across the continental US (but not Alaska or Hawaii). You can also use Google Assistant to shop with your voice; it's coming soon to eligible Android and iPhone devices and available now on Google Home devices and Android TV.

Google Express is a delivery service that is somewhat of a competitor to Amazon Prime. You can shop from local stores and pay a per-order delivery fee, rather than Amazon's flat yearly fee. It also promises same-day delivery, rather than a two-day wait.

Google Express's partnership with Target, which follows their team-up with Walmart, doesn't stop with this nationwide expansion. Target has already announced that, starting next year, REDcard members will receive 5 percent off their orders along with free shipping when they use Google Express. You will also be able to pick up your Google Express order from a Target store, if you prefer. It's just another way for brick-and-mortar stores to complete with Amazon.
