An interesting partnership is brewing. Ford and Amazon are teaming up to bring something interesting into cars. Amazon’s popular product Alexa will now be placed into the new Ford Sync 3.
Starting at the end of this month, people will have the ability to control their vehicles from inside their homes by speaking to their Amazon Alexa device. But starting in summer, you will have the option to control your home by speaking to Alexa from inside the car.
This feature in cars will benefit you greatly because it will help cut down on distracted driving by allowing you to tell Alexa to do certain tasks instead of diverting your attention to your phone. Tasks like scrolling through your playlist looking for a song, shopping, or reading the news can be done by Alexa. Alexa will also be able to play Amazon Audio books, add items to your cart, and much more other things.
Aside from creating a safer driving experience, having this feature in your home can be very beneficial. Alexa can perform certain tasks for you, such as, turning on your home lights, open your garage door, and control other areas of your home. Having the option to control your car from your home has it perks. Alexa will definitely come in handy when it’s cold outside and you can warm your car from inside your house.
