Meanwhile, Toyota and Amazon announced at CES that Alexa will be integrated into some makes of Toyota and Lexus automobiles, allowing car owners to use the virtual assistant to auto-lock and remotely start their vehicles, among other functions, according to CNET.

The addition of Amazon Alexa on Acer, Asus, and HP computers poses a major challenge to Microsoft's own Cortana, which the company has integrated into its Windows operating system.

Customers will be able to access Alexa's range of skills - as its voice applications are called - while in the auto. Alexa will let drivers and passengers get directions, control entertainment features, get the news and perform other functions in the auto via voice command, said both companies.

Alexa will let drivers and passengers get directions, control entertainment features, get the news and perform other functions in the vehicle via voice command, the companies said that Alexa in cars can also be synced with smart-home devices to control thermostats while on the road. Alexa has proved to be compatible with many smart devices and will be an easier way to connect your home than trying to hack together a solution with several different apps or assistants. "It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle", said John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automotive efforts, onstage at a CES event. "This is a big step toward making Alexa available wherever customers might need her".

Once Alexa is enabled, just ask her to do things like adjust your smart home's temperature so it's comfortable when you get there, add milk to your shopping list on your way to the store, or listen to your audiobook from Audible. Our 1,800 North American dealerships (1,500 in the U.S.) sold more than 2.8 million cars and trucks (nearly 2.5 million in the U.S.) in 2015 - and about 80 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold over the past 20 years are still on the road today.
