Amazon Alexa gets on board the Audi e-tron
Audi signed an agreement with Amazon to integrate the online sales giant Alexa voice service into its cars.
The first to be equipped with it will be e-tron. Thanks to Alexa, drivers can access the many features and services available from home or through devices also enabled by their vehicle.
For example, you can monitor news, weather and sports scores, or stream music and audiobooks via Audible, Amazon Music, and TuneIn.
In addition, thanks to the smart home controls, you can close the doors, manage the lights and regulate access to the home garage directly from the car. Alexa is fully integrated into the e-tron MMI system.
The user is not forced to download an app in the smartphone nor he must connect the device to the car.
Simply connect the vehicle to your Amazon account and activate the service using on-board voice commands. The contents and information are reproduced through the audio of the car.
