LG Electronics and webOS Auto
webOS Auto is an open platform for shared and intelligent mobility. It provides features, and functionality, and incorporates all essential components such as multimedia processing, multi-display control, connectivity, security, offering improved comfort and convenience to passengers.
Alexa Auto can help the user play music, get directions, place calls, listen to audiobooks, control your smart home, and more, with just voice – so one can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Alexa is available in dozens of vehicles from leading automakers, and Amazon has released services like the Alexa Auto SDK that make it easy for automakers and suppliers to integrate Alexa directly into their infotainment system.
