There's a lot of third-party devices out there that are putting Alexa on your dashboard as an aftermarket add-on, but Toyota is one of the first automakers to fully embrace loading their vehicles up with Amazon's voice-powered smart assistant.
Voice has been a challenge for carmakers; Alexa could change that.
Acer and HP Devices: Amazon Alexa Debuts on Windows 10 Pc's: - As you, all may know that since a very long time rumors are spreading out on the market that Amazon Alexa is going to make its debutant in the market with Windows. The Company has won Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) awards for innovation for the years 2005 to 2018 and several wireless technology innovation awards among others. Lexus is the company's luxury brand.
"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. While the new Three is slated to arrive this fall for $499 (same price as the current model), the One with Google's virtual assistant won't ship until spring 2019.
