“We knew that it was just a matter of time before Alexa technology was integrated into a traditional head unit,” Paul Goldberg, Epsilon vice-president, sales and marketing said. “With the evolution of the Internet of Things (IOT), the line between car and home will become interconnected and increasingly blurred. Soon we will be controlling our homes via Alexa and our cars. This is an important first step. Voice command is so natural that the next steps in development are pretty obvious for the car.”

The Soundstream VRA-67B incorporates Alexa Voice Service (AVS) commands similar to what you would find on a typical Amazon Echo Dot.
