Amazon's Alexa Is Coming to Some Toyota and Lexus Cars

The first augmented-reality glasses with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant will be shown next week at CES in Las Vegas - manufactured by a 75-employee company rather than the e-commerce giant's growing devices division.

We arrived late Sunday night and strolled past an In-N-Out - a Double-Double seemed like a good way to kick off our week at this insane tech expo, where more than 170,000 attendees from 150 countries gather to get a glimpse of some of tomorrow's technology.

A number of carmakers have introduced Amazon Alexa voice commands that can activate the locks and climate control on their cars, but Toyota is going a step further with Alexa integration by bringing Alexa into the vehicle. Well, the latest announcement by Toyota on its collaboration with Amazon will turn that dream into reality. Using Alexa on your Vuzix Blade AR Smart Sunglasses is simple and hands-free - just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.

"Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and 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", said Zack Hicks, senior vice president and chief information officer of Toyota Motor North America and chief executive officer and president of Toyota Connected. They could even get weather updates through the glasses. "This is a big step toward making Alexa available wherever customers might need her".
