Toyota will add Amazon Alexa to select cars in 2018

The addition of Amazon Alexa on Acer, Asus, and HP computers poses a major challenge to Microsoft's own Cortana, which the company has integrated into its Windows operating system.

Toyota has announced plans to bring the Amazon Alexa virtual assistant to some of its Lexus and Toyota models later this year. This feature will allow Toyota and Lexus customers in the United States to interact with Alexa in the vehicle.

Amazon is integrating the Alexa virtual assistant into more non-Amazon devices, including desktop and laptop computers from several manufacturers, a line of Kohler products and new auto models, according to The Verge and other publications covering the announcements coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. Alexa will let drivers and passengers get directions, control entertainment features, get the news and perform other functions in the vehicle via voice command, said both companies.

"Hands-free access to Alexa on PCs can be helpful to customers in many ways, like making it simple to interact with your smart home, get news or weather, set timers, and more", Steve Rabuchin, vice president of Amazon Alexa, said.

"It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle", said John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automotive efforts, onstage at an event at CES. "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".
