Our app Smart Continente, which has been tailored for the portuguese retailer Continente (Sonae) and allows customers to shop with the app or by using voice assistants, has been featured in several portuguese news outlets:
“Continente claims to be the first worldwide retailer to ensure full integration with two of the world’s leading voice assistants: Google Home and Amazon Alexa. All because the Smart Continente mobile application has undergone an update that makes it compatible with these systems.
To access this feature, simply connect the application to one of these devices – the one you have at home – and start adding products to the shopping list through voice commands. The only limitation is the language: both Google Home and Amazon Alexa only allow English.
Remember that Smart Continente is an app developed in partnership with the startup Shelf.AI that allows the creation of shopping carts with your voice. In addition, it uses artificial intelligence to memorize preferences, recommend products and personalized promotions as well.”
“The Smart Continente application is now compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, enabling an artificial intelligence-based shopping solution. This application, available for iOS and Android, was developed in partnership with startup Shelf AI.
Through artificial intelligence, Smart Continente memorizes preferences, recommends custom products and promotions, and allows customers to add items one by one or in bulk. To do this, users must connect Smart Continente to one of the devices – Google Home or Amazon Alexa – and add the desired products to the shopping list through voice commands. To finish the purchase, simply say “checkout” and finish the process in the site Continente.pt or in the Continente app.”
“Smart Continente, available for iOS and Android, now allows users to use Google Home and Amazon Alexa. These voice-activated personal assistants allow you to make the shopping list through voice commands. At this stage, voice requests can only be made in English, the only language recognized by Home and Alexa. Continente ensures that it is the first retailer in the world to provide a shopping solution compatible with both systems. To finishe the purchase, you must complete the process in the Continente.pt website or the Continente app.

“The Smart Continente application has been updated to be compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, making it possible to make purchases online by voice.
The use of this feature is allowed by connecting the app to Google Home or Amazon Alexa. Customers can then add products to the shopping list through voice commands.
“This new solution will further facilitate the purchases of the Portuguese shoppers and reveals the amount of investment Continente is making to improve the daily life of their customers,” the company said in a statement.

“Portuguese can now do their shopping at the speed of their voice. To do this, simply download the app Smart Continente, available for IOS and Android devices, which has just received an update capable of ensuring full integration with Google Home® and Amazon Alexa®, two personal voice assistants. This makes Continente the first retailer in the world to provide a shopping solution compatible with both systems.
To take advantage of this functionality, users simply need to connect the app to one of the devices – Google Home® or Amazon Alexa®-, and from there, add the desired products to the shopping list through simple voice commands. It is a quick, easy and convenient solution that allows the Portuguese to do their shopping in the comfort of the sofa, while they are stuck in traffic or doing domestic activities. Since the two devices only recognize English for now, voice commands have to be made in that language.
