Amazon’s Alexa is coming to thousands of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles
This week, Jaguar Land Rover released a software update that offers tight integration with Alexa for new car models. The update is available via an over-the-air update for over 200,000 Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles equipped with the Pivi Pro 3.0 infotainment system or later. This comes after Amazon unveiled some of Alexa’s artificial intelligence earlier last year, trying to help automakers better integrate Alexa into their cars.
Alexa from Jaguar and Land Rover eliminates the need for a smartphone and allows drivers to do everything Alexa can do, such as playing music, navigating to points of interest, and announcing news and weather, hands-free. At home, you can even use the new remote technology with Alexa to turn on the climate and lock or unlock the car.
