Have you ever been in your car and have Alexa at home so when you want something done you say “Hey Alexa” by accident, then realize Alexa isn’t listening in your car? Well if you say yes and you own certain Ford vehicles, you’re in luck! Ford is adding Alexa into its cars that have its “SYNC 3” platform, according to to Engadget. You will not only be able to use Alexa in your car, but you can ask her things at home that have to do with your car. For example, if you can’t remember how much gas you have or how charged up your car is, you can simply ask your Echo or Echo Dot how much fuel you have left. This integration is going to roll out to certain cars such as the “Focus Electric, Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi” by the end of this month, starting with the in-home car control and the service inside of your car will come later on, Engadget reports.
Whether you are looking for a song, creating a shopping list, or you forgot to turn your lights off, you will be able to control all of this right from the drivers seat. Other upcoming SYNC 3 integration will include LTE hotspots powered by AT&T (Only coming to 2018 Models, according to Engadget), and Samsung Gear S2 and S3 owners will soon have the ability to connect their watches to the system.
