From entertainment and connectivity to safety and performance, Toyota has never been a stranger to industry-leading technology. No, Toyota drivers will be able to enjoy even greater tech-savvy convenience, as the automaker announced early January that some Toyota models will come equipped with Amazon Alexa cloud-based voice assistant technology.
World of Possibilities
Alexa voice recognition technology opens up a world of possibilities for drivers. While behind the wheel, the system lets you do things like play music and check the weather. This is in addition to more advanced tasks, such as pairing with smart devices to turn on the lights at home or open the garage door. Drivers will also be able to interact with their surroundings like never before, identifying nearby businesses quickly and instantly getting directions to them.
The addition of Alexa to Toyota vehicles will also come with some new features in the vehicles themselves, such as remote starting or locking the doors through voice commands to an Alexa-enabled device at home.
Alexa will be available on all 2018 Toyota vehicles with Entune® 3.0 App Suite technology, and also on an even greater number of vehicles by 2019, giving us all a lot to be excited about.
