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.
These companies will allow Alexa into their vehicles or integrating the voice service into the connectivity systems that link customers' cars and mobile phones. Well, the latest announcement by Toyota on its collaboration with Amazon will turn that dream into reality.
Voice control has been available for quite some time in Android Auto equipped cars, but the actual assistant will provide a little more functionality and usability.
Toyota's Entune 3.0 system gets an upgrade to include a version of Alexa. Among other things they'll be able to remotely start the vehicle, unlock its doors or even check fuel levels, for example. Executives from Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant will be seeking new partners and other big technology companies, including Apple Inc. and Facebook Inc.'s Oculus division, will be at the show behind the scenes as they ramp up their virtual-reality and augmented-reality products.
Amazon hasn't said whether it will release its own branded smart glasses with Alexa, but Travers expects it to happen.
Toyota suggests a number of ways users could use Alexa in the vehicle, such as for taking notes and setting reminders, activating apps, or for controlling other smart devices, such as the heating and cooling on your house.
Several automakers, notably including Ford, are taking advantage of Alexa's ability to conduct e-commerce.
The partnership will bring to life Amazon's plans to expand its speech platform beyond one's home.
