There’s a new couple in the automotive world, because the upcoming Volkswagen Golf 8 has Amazon Alexa on board. Although the automaker doesn’t always have open arms to big American companies, it doesn’t seem to have a bigger problem with Amazon. Amazon obviously doesn’t want to access as much data from Volkswagen drivers for Alexa integration, so the voice assistant is allowed on board. It is also optional.

Voice control is just part of it today

In recent years, Amazon and Google have been fighting over who can bring their voice assistant to not only more living rooms, but more cars from various manufacturers as well. Amazon is up there. But Volkswagen doesn’t just offer voice control from Alexa, the Golf also has its own voice control system for vehicle functions, which is more or less similar to what Mercedes and Co. already offer.
