Toyota will offer Alexa in its cars starting later this year

Although the concept sounds like the future of driving technology, cars will not be able to use voice assistants for an entirely autonomous driving experience. Google Assistant is being introduced into Android Auto equipped vehicles including certain offerings from Ford, Holden, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Subaru. It is unclear which models specifically will get it, but Entune 3.0 first came to the fold previous year via the 2018 Toyota Camry.

A Kohler-branded mirror, the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, has embedded microphones and speakers, bringing Alexa to the space above the bathroom sink.
