GM announced that select 2018 and newer model-year vehicles will be receiving Amazon Alexa connectivity, allowing occupants to have Alexa read the news, turn on or off home smart devices, play a specific song, add a destination to the in-car navigation, place a call and more. All that’s required is a compatible infotainment system that allows for over-the-air updates via in-car 4G LTE service. The automaker — brands of which include Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC — says it will also be able to add custom skills to Alexa tailored to the individual vehicle.
