You Will Be Able to Use Alexa In Your BMW
Everyone’s favorite Amazon personal assistant, Alexa, will be added to BMW’s ever-growing list of technology features. Starting in mid-2018, all new BMW models will include Alexa. In fact, drivers will have access to tens of thousands of Alexa skills, along with shopping and entertainment features, all while on-the-go.
Dieter May, Senior Vice President Digital Services and Business Models at the BMW Group, remarked, “Voice control first featured in BMW Group cars many years ago, and we are now enhancing its functionality by adding a digital ecosystem, which will open up all sorts of new possibilities that customers can access quickly, easily and safely from their car.”
Since 2016, Alexa has had a BMW Connected skill. With this feature enabled, owners of an Amazon Echo device can ask Alexa to check vehicle information and even control their BMW through Remote Services. Alexa can also check on schedule appointments, routes, and departure times with the BMW Connected mobility agenda.
