Nissan and BMW Add Amazon Alexa Support in Their Cars
  • Nissan introduces Amazon Alexa in its Vehicles

Nissan has introduced Amazon Alexa in some of its vehicles using NissanConnect Services. This new add-on facility has souped up its cars as well as BMW’s in a fundamental way. BMW announces to integrate Amazon Alexa next year in its new BMW and Mini models.

Nissan provides its Connect Services in conjunction with Amazon Alexa so that drivers can employ their voice to start the ignition of their cars. They can even open the doors and turn on the headlights via this facility.

Now, owners of Nissan automobiles may operate their cars partially from the comfort of their living rooms. If you forgot to lock your car or want to start it in remote control fashion, then look no further since Nissan and Amazon have just the thing for you.

The steps involved in starting your Nissan vehicles are so simple that even a four year old child could master them. You may launch a request if you wish. The commands for this series of actions are clear.

Then you may have your choice of vehicle in case you own two cars. To lock or unlock doors, there are specific commands. You may turn the horn off or on as per your discretion. Finally the engine ignition could be activated or deactivated and so could the headlights.

Voice modulated remote control access is something altogether new. Some of Nissan’s cars will be getting this facility. The commands are very simple and do not require any complex code or abstruse formulas.

The models of cars in which these commands work include: Nissan Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, TITAN, TITAN XD, GT-R and Armada.

Now that you may start your Nissan from the comfort of your couch, you know in your heart of hearts that things have really progressed in the world. This facility will also be added to the all-new 2018 Nissan Leaf.
