Amazon Alexa Will Be Available in Select Lexus Models
Amazon Alexa Will Be Available in Select Lexus Models! Toyota, the automaker behind Lexus, recently announced that it will introduce Amazon Alexa in select Lexus vehicles through the Enform App Suite 2.0 in 2018, while additional models will be available in 2019. This feature will allow customers to connect with Alexa in the car aiding in tasks like asking for directions, controlling entertainment, getting the news, adding items to a shopping list, controlling their smart home while on the road, and more.
“Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go,” said Zack Hicks, senior vice president and chief information officer of Toyota Motor North America and chief executive officer and president of Toyota Connected.
“We’re thrilled that Toyota and Lexus will bring Alexa to customers on the road,” said John Scumniotales, head of product for Amazon Alexa Automotive. “Our vision for Alexa is that she should be everywhere a customer might need her – at home, in the office, on phones – and in cars. This integration means that customers can interact with Alexa, virtually anywhere they drive.”
