Amazon Alexa is becoming a popular service, the voice activated assistant is being built into more devices from third party manufacturers and now it is coming to our cars.
Ford has announced that it has teamed up with Amazon to bring Alexa to its vehicle and it will be made available through the Ford SYNC 3 AppLink.
“Ford and Amazon are aligned around a vision that your voice should be the primary way to interface with your favorite devices and services,” said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services. “Customers will be able to start their vehicles from home, and manage smart home features while on the road – making life easier.”
Ford will roll out its Alexa integration in two phases. The first, available later this month, connects you to your car from the comfort of home through Alexa devices such as Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Tap. The second, expected this summer, allows you to tap into a broad set of Alexa skills using your voice while driving – helping you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
