Ford SYNC 4: Amazon Alexa Integration

Sep 23,2022

Ford SYNC 4 is Ford's in-car infotainment system, available across a wide range of model years, and is one of the most advanced systems on the market. Ford has announced that it will integrate Amazon Alexa into its vehicles, allowing owners to access Alexa through the vehicle's infotainment system. This will enable users to make calls, send messages hands-free, and use other features like music streaming. The integration means you can use Alexa to access music, news, sports, and weather reports, just as you would on an Alexa device. You can also ask about your commute and get turn-by-turn directions for navigating to your next appointment. Ford already offers several features for SYNC 4, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and the ability to send text messages by voice command. Ford's Alexa integration is part of a more significant trend of automakers integrating third-party services into their infotainment systems. You can also ask Alexa for directions, weather reports, and other information that might be useful when driving around town. In addition to having access to Alexa's various features while going, Ford owners will also be able to use voice commands to start their vehicles remotely from their phones — just as long as they have previously enabled remote start functionality on their cars via their smartphone app. For more details about the feature, contact the Skaha Ford team.
