Amazon Alexa Coming to Toyota Vehicles

Amazon Alexa Coming to Toyota Vehicles

It should be noted that Microsoft has its own voice assistant - Cortana system, which is integrated in Windows platform 10.

The feature will be available in all Toyota and Lexus cars that have the Toyota Entune 3.0 App Suite and Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0 in 2018.

The move will allow Toyota drivers to use Alexa's speech-command system to order navigation, pick entertainment options, get the news, add items to a shopping cart and other services.

At the Consumer Electronics Show yesterday, Amazon announced that Toyota will be the latest and largest automaker to integrate Alexa into its cars.

Amazon's technology will be offered in certain Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with special infotainment software beginning in 2018 and expanding into more models in 2019.

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

"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.

The service will also enable new features in the cars themselves, such the ability to start the engine remotely or lock the vehicle doors, by giving a command through another Alexa device in the home or elsewhere.

Toyota's Entune 3.0 system debuted on its 2018 Camry and Sienna models past year and Lexus' version showed up a couple of months later on RC, LS, and LC models.
