Amazon Alexa Is Now Built in to Ford’s SYNC 4

Aug 17,2022

Amazon Alexa is making its way into cars. Ford SYNC 4, the latest version of Ford's infotainment system that comes standard with vehicles, will include Amazon Alexa compatibility for the first time. This might seem trivial, but heads up, automakers-there is a trend in the industry where people want more integration with connected home technology. With this update to Ford SYNC 4's software package, customers can control various vehicle functions using voice commands with the Amazon Alexa app on their smartphone. They can use simple phrases like "Alexa, tell my car to start warming up" or "Alexa, ask my car what the temperature is inside." And they can also use Alexa for entertainment commands like "Alexa play NPR in the car" or "Alexa ask my car how much fuel I have left." If you do not know about this feature, it is very similar to Google Assistant installed in your smartphone. All you have to do is speak and the AI-based system will detect and follow your voice command. Integrating Amazon Alexa into SYNC 4 is a great step forward for technology as it proves to be a simple way for cars to adapt and evolve as technology continues to advance.
