Toyota will add Amazon Alexa to pick out vehicles in 2018

Just which Toyota and Lexus models will have Amazon Alexa hasn't been announced, the automaker told The Car Connection in an email.

These companies will allow Alexa into their vehicles or integrating the voice service into the connectivity systems that link customers' cars and mobile phones. The popularity of Alexa in homes has led many observers and analysts to conclude that it could bring voice in vehicle to a new level. The Alexa integration in the USA will be available via a software update through Acer Care Centre, but its wider availability is expected for sometime in the mid of 2018. Though Toyota doesn't specifically say which models, we suspect the Camry and Sienna will be the first, since they're the only Toyotas with EnTune 3.0. Additional hands-free commands will also be enabled to let users perform multiple operations using the personal assistant from Amazon.

Toyota will add Amazon Alexa to pick out vehicles in 2018

Toyota's Entune 3.0 system gets an upgrade to include a version of Alexa. As an example, drivers could tell Alexa to turn on the living room lights while the owner is pulling into the garage.

Voice control has been available for quite some time in Android Auto equipped cars, but the actual assistant will provide a little more functionality and usability.

In general, the researchers discovered that women lived longer than men by an average of six months to almost four years. Women's increased life expectancy is because they tend to have a survival advantage in infancy rather than adulthood.

Soon the voice assistant Amazon Alexa will appear on thousands of computers under control of operating system Windows 10.

"It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle", said John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automotive efforts, onstage at an event at CES.
