Amazon Alexa in Toyota Cars


When drivers shop for a car at Keyes Toyota, we know that they're probably looking for the latest tech. Fortunately, the Toyota brand is always adding new features to your favorite vehicles. One bit of new technology that will soon make its way to select models is Amazon's Alexa. This digital assistant will offer a number of useful features that you can take advantage of every time you hit the road.

Alexa will first make its way to models that come equipped with the EnTune 3.0 or EnForm 2.0 infotainment systems. That could mean that the 2018 Toyota Camry and the 2018 Toyota Sienna could be among the first vehicles to offer this new tech. After that it will quickly migrate to more vehicles in 2019. Eventually each Toyota model will offer this functionality.

Alexa integration would allow you to take care of a few simple tasks from behind the wheel. Common uses could include checking weather conditions on the road ahead or setting reminders for later. You could also use it to activate certain apps once your smartphone is synced up to your vehicle's infotainment system.

This voice activation technology could also allow you to control smart home devices. Imagine being in your car and being able to turn on the air conditioning with a simple voice command just before you get home. You'll walk into a cool home, without wasting any excess electricity. We can't wait to try this new feature out for ourselves.
