Commuters are killing time with a new generation of dashboard devices

Cars are on their way to becoming the new smartphone.

There’s already been a slew of new in-car technology over the last year. There’s good reason why. One in six adults already have a voice-activated speaker, a recent survey by National Public Media and Edison Research polling company concluded. In fact, there’s been a 128% increase in usage of devices like Amazon’s AMZN, +0.02% Alexa and Google Home GOOG, -0.10% since January 2017. And one-third say they would like to see voice-activated technology in cars.

Ford added Amazon’s Alexa voice service to its cars in 2017.
