Alexa will be in Your New Toyota, Lexus Car by 2019

One step closer to world domination One step closer to world domination

Just like the home version, Toyota's Alexa implementation can also gain skills from third party developers.

Japanese automaker Toyota will integrate Amazon's Alexa voice assistant into some of its cars as the auto industry increasingly adopts the tech world's hottest offerings to improve the vehicle experience. According to Toyota, they will be fitting their future vehicle with Alexa this year but so far, they have not said anything about adding the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. Next, Amazon's voice-enabled digital assistant could live in your glasses. The Alexa integration in the U.S. will be available via a software update through Acer Care Centre, but its wider availability is expected for sometime in the mid of 2018. In the past, voice assistants in vehicles only had a few functionalities, including the ability to control lights, locks and starting engines. Meanwhile, Amazon will release Alexa app in the coming weeks, and PC makers are seeking help from Intel's Smart Sound Technology to ensure hands-free access to Alexa on PCs. The newly launched Swift 7 and Spin notebooks will come with Alexa pre-loaded like Cortana, while the remaining entries will receive Alexa via Acer Care Centre by the mid of 2018. They also more closely resemble normal glasses, although Vuzix's eyewear is still noticeably thicker than standard prescription glasses. The Detroit automaker now allows a motorist to order a cup of coffee from Starbucks through Alexa, or a pizza from Domino's.

The partnership will bring to life Amazon's plans to expand its speech platform beyond one's home.

"Downstream benefits like e-commerce" could eventually become a substantial source of revenue, acknowledged Scumniotales, especially when autonomous and fully driverless vehicles become part of everyday reality.
