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.
