McDonald’s has announced that they have agreed to purchase the voice-based the company Apprente, which could result in automated drive-thrus in the future. The fast food company has already tested Apprente’s technology at some restaurants, where customers could drive up to the menu board and speak to a voice-powered machine to place an order, then drive up to the window to pick up their order. Sound familiar? Yes, just like placing your order with a human. McDonald’s plans to have the technology available in all of its U.S. restaurants and about 1,000 Australia stores by the end of the year.
