This year, General Motors has plans to add everyone’s favorite electronic assistant, Alexa, to the GM lineup. The in-vehicle Alexa app will be available during the first half of this year on 2018 and newer vehicle with compatible technology.
Being able to use the same voice services in your home and in your car can makes things a little bit easier. With Alexa in your car, you will have access to tens of thousands of Alexa Skills. You would be able to access your smart home devices and do some Amazon shopping.
In addition to those standard Alexa features, GM will add a few unique in-car capabilities. For example, you will be able to use Alexa to interact with your navigation system to get directions. You could also ask Alexa to play music from streaming services or call people from your phone contact list.
“Customers already love using Alexa at home, and soon they can bring her with them on the go, whether they’re looking for a new car or own a compatible [GM] vehicle already on the road,” added Ned Curic, VP of Alexa Auto at Amazon. “We’re thrilled to be working with GM to help their customers stay more connected, more entertained, and more productive.”
