This document describes a technique for processing voice commands in a voice activated computing system. In particular, the system processes the voice commands and selects ads to be presented to the user based, in part, on a status of the merchants associated with the ads, and in part on the status of the users. The system takes into consideration the status information of the service provider, which status can include whether the service provider is open or closed for business, inventory levels of an advertised product at the service provider, etc. The system also takes into consideration the status information of the user, which status information can include the location of the user relative to a location associated with the service provider, interests of the user, power level of the user device, etc. Based on the status information of the service provider and the status information of the user, the system can select an appropriate ad from the service provider and present the ad to a selected an user from a number of users.
