AAA has launched the ability to search for its AAA Diamond Rated restaurants via Amazon Echo and Google Home devices.

The voice-based technology enables users to access information about 31,000 AAA-inspected and approved restaurants.

To use the service, Alexa users must first activate the AAA Restaurants skill. Then they can say things like, "Alexa, tell AAA to find me a restaurant." Google Home users can say, "OK Google, tell AAA Restaurants to find me a restaurant."

One tip: "AAA" is pronounced "triple A."

AAA is working to make the technology available on other voice-based devices as well as expand its capabilities.

"Consumers want information instantly and easily," Ramon Millan, vice president, chief technology and digital officer at AAA's national office, said in a statement. "Voice-based technologies like Alexa and Google Home are driving this trend. AAA continues to innovate and promote these exciting new approaches, and, in doing so, is meeting and exceeding the needs of AAA members and other consumers while providing the most convenient access to Diamond Rated restaurants."
