Google News article Google has acquired the digital scale company WalMart Digital, according to a report in Business Insider.
The acquisition was announced on Monday, with WalMart CEO Doug McMillon tweeting that the deal would help “improve Walmart’s digital footprint.”
Walmart Digital, which is part of the e-commerce giant’s e-store service, currently offers two different digital scales, the Digital Scale 1 and Digital Scale 2.
They offer two main advantages over digital scales such as those offered by Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft.
First, the digital scales can handle a wide range of sizes.
Second, they can handle high resolution photos and videos, while the physical scale offers low-resolution versions.
Walmart is currently using the digital scaled versions of the Digital scale 1, 2, and 3 in its stores.
Walmart previously acquired the online retailer’s ecommerce service in 2018.
Walmart acquired Amazon in 2018, and is expected to acquire the digital retailer’s physical retail business in 2020.
