Aiming to make the digital assistants from the brand more in-tune with drivers, the Amazon Alexa now supports connectivity with BMW Connected to enable enhanced capabilities. The new personal assistant feature allows drivers to check a bevy of different features that pertain to the state of their BMW. This can include asking about the battery charge level, how much fuel is in the tank and even making sure it's locked.

The Amazon Alexa and BMW Connected integration also allows users to plan a trip and then send the details to the vehicle for use with the on-board navigation controls. The digital assistants will also be able to remotely start the vehicle and even enables control of the horn and headlights.
