#4 Alexa Integration

This technology isn’t necessarily new; however, its integration into Ford cars and trucks is. Similar to Alexa’s original use, controlling your home’s lights, security systems etc from outside your house, Amazon and Ford are working together to integrate that process into your vehicle with the ability to control those home functions from your car.
