No thank you to Ford. Don't want my personal conversations and data recorded and reviewed in my home or CAR. Ford continues to look for ways to have data revenues exceed vehicle sales.
Ford expands in-vehicle Alexa capability as it begins over-the-air updates
DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. said Thursday that it is bringing in-vehicle Amazon Alexa voice capability to roughly 700,000 Ford vehicles in the U.S. and Canada this year through over-the-air updates as part of a new six-year deal with the tech giant.
The automaker, which announced a separate six-year deal with Google earlier this year, billed the partnership as the industry's "broadest rollout of the embedded Alexa hands-free experience to date." The update will allow customers to use in-vehicle voice commands to place a phone call or find parking, as well control things such as lighting or temperature in their home from within their car.
