Toyota to Introduce Amazon Alexa in its Vehicles

Toyota Connect

Toyota has decided to integrate the popular Amazon Alexa voice recognition into certain vehicles starting in 2018. For vehicles that contain the infotainment software, drivers will be able to ask Alexa for directions to a destination, ask questions about the news, or even to add an item to a shopping cart.

Voice recognition is becoming more popular for automakers, as Toyota and other companies work to bring technology into vehicles that customers want. Amazon's Alexa will be made available to even more Toyota models beginning in 2019. For drivers wanting the convenience of a familiar voice recognition software while on the go, Amazon's Alexa is the answer.

No matter whether you spend long hours commuting to work, or you like to take your family on long drives, Alexa is going to change how you look at traveling forever. Instead of fumbling around with a smartphone, you'll be able to ask Alexa for directions, find a local restaurant of your favorite food, or even locate a hotel that has open rooms for the night.

Navigate easily through traffic, or take a detour and find the fastest route to work using the Alexa navigation. Toyota is a leader in the automotive industry, and this move is going to bring two giants together to create an integrative driving experience for Toyota customers.

If you are already familiar with Alexa for your home, then you understand how useful Alexa can be in your daily life. Find your favorite song, ask Alexa a question, and you'll understand just how helpful the voice recognition system is going to be when you are driving your Toyota vehicle.
