    Very cool that they added it for 2015+ vehicles.

    I can't believe how unexcited everyone is about this integration, though I'm admittedly bullish on this type of voice service.

    I like "dumb" cars that simply serve the purpose of transportation. This is the type of feature bloat that I would ask or attempt to remove.

    Heck, I recall having a couple rage fits in some newer cars when I realized I couldn't turn OFF the headlights when parked.

    Actually I'm pretty stoked for this integration, makes hands free music selection much easier.

    Correct me if I am wrong but isnt Lexus/Alexa going to be subscription based after some period?

    If so its why I am not excited about this.

    Not that I'm aware of. You might be confusing it with BMW's CarPlay/Android Auto integration, which *is* subscription-based?
