General Motors is adding Amazon Alexa virtual assistant capabilities to vehicles that are from the model year 2018 and newer, allowing drivers to control navigation, media, and calling via voice commands.
Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles will feature Amazon Alexa capabilities beginning in the first half of 2020. General Motor’s embedded available 4G LTE connectivity and updateable embedded app framework in the vehicle allows for the connectivity with Alexa.
This integration represents the latest collaboration between GM and Amazon. In 2018, GM launched in-car delivery with Key by Amazon and a series of Connected Car skills for Alexa, available on millions of eligible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles in select cities. More information about how customers can set up Alexa will be shared closer to launch.
