Logitech Brings Alexa to Your Car

Logitech Brings Alexa to Their In-Car ZeroTouch App and Mount System

Not too long ago we took a look at the Logi ZeroTouch smart car system, a way for owners of older cars to turn their smartphones into a driver safe smart car interface. Snapping an Android phone into one of Logitech’s dash or vent mounts automatically launches the ZeroTouch app, which enables simple voice commands for things like calendars, music and maps. Yesterday, Logitech announced that they’ll be bringing a lot more voice commands to ZeroTouch, thanks to Alexa integration.

Alexa is being added to the ZeroTouch app by way of an update, which will basically turn your car into an Alexa-enabled speaker. You’ll be able to ask Alexa to do anything you’d ask an Echo unit to do — that could mean turning lights or the smart thermostat on or off, but it could also mean more important things like ordering pizza or Starbucks.

The updated ZeroTouch app is available now on the Google Play Store, but as always with Alexa, you’ll need a Amazon account if you want her to be your K.I.T.T. stand-in.
