General Motors is bringing millions of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac owners the ability to add convenience and productivity to their daily drives through a new in-vehicle Alexa experience.

Drivers will be able to use Alexa via simple voice commands, all while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel
Leveraging embedded available 4G LTE connectivity and GM's updateable embedded app framework in the vehicle, GM will make Alexa available on model year 2018 and newer cars, trucks and crossovers with compatible infotainment systems.

The Alexa voice experience in GM vehicles leverages the Alexa Auto Software Development Kit, which gives customers access to the standard Alexa skills and capabilities. GM also intends to create custom skills in the future that are relevant to the customer's vehicle.

This collaboration represents the broadest rollout of an embedded Alexa Auto experience to date, and provides a tailored voice experience for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac drivers with properly equipped vehicles.

Drivers will be able to use Alexa via simple voice commands, all while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. They may also check the news, control smart home devices like lights or thermostats, or add items to their shopping cart.

Additionally, GM is delivering several categories of Alexa features that expand on the in-vehicle experience. Users will be able to ask Alexa for directions to a specific address or point of interest, or nearby coffee shops, or ask Alexa to call friends and family using their voice when they pair their phone via Bluetooth and share their contacts with Amazon.
