Infiniti Adds Amazon Alexa Skill to Select Vehicles

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 10/18/2017 Motor Trend Staff

Infiniti has added an Amazon Alexa skill as part of its connected services to allow owners to start, unlock, and lock their vehicles via voice commands using an Amazon Echo. Available on the Alexa Skill Store, the new feature connects Infiniti's multimedia systems to an Alexa-enabled device and is free to download.

The Alexa skill does require owners to have an active subscription to Infiniti's InTouch Services or Infiniti Connection to use along with a valid Owner Portal account. Nearly every current Infiniti modelfrom the 2013 model year onward will be compatible with the Alexa skill. The only vehicles not supported are the QX50, which will soon be replaced by a new-generation model, and the QX30 small crossover.

The availability of Alexa on some of Infiniti's vehicles follows a similar move by parent company Nissan who recently added the feature to nearly its entire lineup. With the app, owners can ask Alexa to lock, unlock, and turn on their vehicles. Additional functions include honking the horn and flashing the car's lights. Certain features, however, like remote start, require a four-digit pin to activate as an additional level of security.
