  • Amazon Alexa will become your co-pilot in Toyota, Lexus cars

Amazon's personal digital assistant will be part of the auto features for new vehicles that Toyota will introduce this year, as announced at the CES 2018.

On the show floor, it smoothly scrolled through demo applications popping up info in ways we're used to seeing on our phones or through Android Auto.

When Vuzix last week announced that its Alexa-enabled augmented reality smart glasses would debut at CES, you had to know it was just the beginning of the Alexa avalanche coming in 2018.

Alexa in cars can also be synced with smart-home devices. Like Alexa, drivers and passengers can use voice commands to control features within their vehicle's multimedia system, as well as ask questions, find out the weather. you get the idea.

The Smart Display runs Android Things OS, which is separate from the interface you would use on an Android tablet or smartphone.

Furthermore, the smart displays are equipped with all the Google services' applications. LG is playing both sides, in fact. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 SoC and comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. In fact, Cortana will be competing against other assistants this year with more presence on devices. In many booths, signs prominently advertised that products worked with Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa. In this regard, Google has partnered with Kia and Fiat Chrysler to give the Assistant access to their cars' fuel levels and to allow users to lock their cars with their voice.

Nonetheless, Google Assistant powered devices were at least in evidence in more water-tight areas of the show. With a display, Google Assistant will be able to play a YouTube video, search for map directions, call a cab and track it, as well as pull up images through Google Photos.

But compared with the Lenovo's intriguing offering, the LG speaker is pretty damn ugly.

The whole idea behind Smart Displays is to serve as an in-house assistant for all your daily needs. For more updates, stay tuned with us!
