Amazon's Alexa Voice Assistant Coming to Toyota's Cars This Year

Vuzix Making Alexa-Enabled Smart Glasses, to Debut at CES 2018

Users are at liberty of controlling the volume or control tracks via voice command through Google Assistant.

Several firms also revealed Alexa "dongles", many that double as chargers, at CES. A smart display with Assistant will probably be somewhere between these two prices. According to a report from Bloomberg, the Vuzix device is an augmented reality glasses that are more similar to the now-defunct Google Glass than anything else.

Amazon.com (AMZN) and Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google jockeyed for the spotlight Monday at media events ahead of the annual CES consumer technology trade show. As the Jabra earbuds, LG 2018 TVs, and C by GE line of smart lights and switches, which support Alexa, Assistant and Siri, demonstrate, products can actually support more than one voice assistant. The video shows how Google's Assistant work on the upcoming Smart Displays and how it would be helpful for you to make the smart display more smarter. Amazon's Echo, the first smart speaker on the market, was introduced in November 2014.

Google and Amazon weren't alone in voice assistant news this week. The new versions will now feature Google's digital A.I. helper, Google Assistant.

"When drivers have access to familiar Alexa contextual commands and responses from inside the auto, it opens up a new world of experiences OEMs can offer - enabling some of these capabilities even without an Internet connection is revolutionary", said Tom Gebhardt, President of the Panasonic Corporation of North America.

However, he doesn't think that fridges and bath tubs are where Alexa will really become indispensable for home users, not least because most people don't replace such items often. After bringing Alexa voice control to its services back in May, Dish announced today that it will be doing the same with Google's AI offering.

The gloves are clearly off between Google and Amazon. The redesigned Google Store is part of the company's "revamped" consumer push to take down Amazon's assistant.

While Amazon was noticeably missing from the show in terms of booth presence, the company's technology did manage to find its way into some fairly significant new product announcements.

The key benefit to AI is that it's supposed to be smart enough to learn your preferences and adjust accordingly.

However, Amazon's Alexa software has a wider range of skills on offer that enable it to link up with and control more third-party devices around the home.
