You can now deploy Amazon's Alexa in sync with your G-suite calender

For example, customers can instruct Alexa to "ask Mercedes to send and address to the auto", and they will receive navigation information and point-of-interest requests.

If you're an Amazon Echo user, the device's new feature could be a big step in helping you plan your days and weeks.

They're in our phones, speakers, washing machines, and now, cars.

The voice-controlled home assistant Google Home now features voice recognition to distinguish between several user accounts. European service will follow later this year.

Using your Echo and Google Home in conjunction with your Mercedes will involve more verbal gymnastics than if you were just using the smart home devices on their own. The company announced the new product on Wednesday May 18, 2016 at its annual I/O developer conference.

A number of recent updates to Alexa, the software inside of Amazon Echo, have been aimed at improving how Echo acts with other smart home devices.

However, Ford kicked it up a notch adding that the service will also enable customers to control connected devices in their homes while driving. Through the Alexa Voice Service Program, Amazon is offering a hardware reference package that bundles the technology for use by partners and not charging for the privilege.

But things took a little lean towards the paranoid recently, when Burger King rolled out its innovative new ad. But starting today, Google Home will allow for multiple Google accounts.

OK Google... sell me a Whopper. Echo is just a device with smartphones and a speaker. Would you prefer to have an Arabic-speaking Amazon Amal instead of an Alexa? The skill is called ULTRA 95 and combines workout routines with ads for the Michelob Ultra beer.
