The future may be closer than we think! Ford and Amazon are working together to place the Amazon digital assistant, Alexa in their latest vehicles. Soon, people will be able to control their cars straight from their Amazon devices. The latest Ford SYNC 3 AppLink is one of many new developments coming to vehicles to assist customers in navigating their phones as well as their cars. While the AppLink was originally used to help display phone screens in Ford vehicles, Amazon takes the app to a new level with voice-activated technology.
