Automobiles are bracing for the future. Samsung recently announced their new DRVLINE autonomous driving platform, and now Toyota and Lexus are integrating Amazon‘s popular voice assistant into their new cars.

The news of this comes during CES 2018, with Toyota stating that future vehicles with the Entune 3.0 infotainment system, alongside Lexus models with the Entune 2.0 system will gain Alexa capabilities later this year. Toyota was light on what specific models will be gaining the functionality, but Entune 3.0 first rolled out with the 2018 Toyota Camry, so it is expected that future models from here on out will gain Alexa support.

In a recent press release, senior vice president and chief information officer of Toyota North America Zach Hicks said that “Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go,”

In the Lexus and Toyota vehicles, Alexa can be used naturally, such as controlling media controls and asking for directions, which is a departure from other auto manufacturers, as they use Alexa for controlling certain aspects of the vehicle.
