Once Ford releases the update through its Power-Up program, you won’t need the company’s AppLink software to access Alexa in your car anymore. Ford says this new version of Alexa in its cars is “friction and hands-free.” Without pressing any button, you can ask Alexa to point you to the nearest gas station, play music or provide you with a traffic update. As before, with the FordPass skill, you can also ask the voice assistant to do things like start and stop your car, as well as lock and unlock the doors. Ford vehicles have come with access to Alexa, but actually using Amazon’s voice-activated assistant in your car has involved meeting some specific requirements.
