Amazon Alexa Set to Become Power Business Tool on Windows 10 PCs

Vuzix Blade in action at CES 2018- Socially engaged and digitally connected

A number of carmakers have introduced Amazon Alexa voice commands that can activate the locks and climate control on their cars, but Toyota is going a step further with Alexa integration by bringing Alexa into the vehicle.

"Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go", Toyota chief information officer Zack Hicks said in a statement. The company has launched the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit to make its new development possible and ultimately broaden the reach of Alexa - taking on Google Assistant, Apple Siri, and Microsoft Cortana. All of Alexa's skill will be available in the vehicle.

Six months since Amazon and Microsoft shook hands for coupling Windows 10 with Alexa, we are having the initial signs of its arrival.

Toyota, whose efficient manufacturing techniques transformed the auto industry, is turning to Alexa to bolster its voice-recognition capability.

"Vuzix continues to lead the way in wearable smart glasses innovation and it should come as no surprise that the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Sunglasses will be the first pair of smart glasses to be Alexa-Enabled".

Amazon confirmed Vuzix's claim of being first with Alexa-backed AR smart glasses and said it is "excited about the potential of the glasses and the ability to bring Alexa to customers in a new way". "This integration means that customers can interact with Alexa, virtually anywhere they drive". This week, a number of computer makers announced that they will ship some of their Windows 10 PC models with Alexa installed, allowing users to simply talk to their PCs if they want to start a search, listen to music, or perform other tasks. The Detroit automaker now allows a motorist to order a cup of coffee from Starbucks through Alexa, or a pizza from Domino's.

"Downstream benefits like e-commerce" could eventually become a substantial source of revenue, acknowledged Scumniotales, especially when autonomous and fully driverless vehicles become part of everyday reality.
