If you own a Mercedes-Benz and reside in the United States, you’ll probably be pleased to hear that your vehicle is now a whole lot smarter, as the automotive giant has today added compatibility for Alexa and Google Assistant to its 2016 and 2017 models.
Activating Alexa or Google Assistant in your car couldn’t be easier. All you need is an active Mercedes Me account and a subscription to mbrace, the Mercedes-Benz smartphone platform, then input your Amazon or Google credentials. That’s all there is to it.
The functionality should make its way to Europe soon
As we mentioned earlier, the functionality is currently only available on compatible models in the United States. However, the firm has announced that it’s planning to bring the feature to Europe (and presumably other markets) in the not-too-distant future.
