Amazon's Alexa Coming to Select Toyota, Lexus Models This Year

Amazon's Alexa Coming to Select Toyota, Lexus Models This Year

The service will also enable new features in the cars themselves, such the ability to start the engine remotely or lock the auto doors, by giving a command through another Alexa device in the home or elsewhere.

After reaching a large number of smartphones and some smart speakers, Amazon is now set to bring its Alexa voice assistant to various portable, on-the-go devices. The mixed reception has taught startups and manufacturers what pitfalls to avoid and how to make a smart glasses product that has the potential to be both mainstream and useful for productivity fans.

Wearers, who must be Amazon customers or become Amazon customers to enable Alexa's capabilities, could for example ask the digital assistant to pull up a map or display sports scores on the glasses.

Amazon's Alexa has been helpful in our homes the last couple of years and now she's ready to give us a hand in our cars as well. Over the past 50 years, we've built more than 30 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 44,000 people (more than 34,000 in the U.S.).

If it seems like Amazon is putting Alexa into absolutely everything, the e-commerce giant may feel like it has to in order to remain the clear No. 1 in the virtual assistant market.

We'll see Vuzix's AR glasses with Alexa support before the summer of 2018, at a price point around $1,000 Dollars. Current users won't be missing out on Alexa, as they have promised that Alexa will be made available on select devices through updates.

Voice assistants and augmented-reality products will be highlighted at next week's CES consumer electronics show. Vuzix's chief executive officer Paul Travers recognized the disadvantages of such a high price point but did say that the company was expecting to shave the figure by as much as 50 percent by next year.
