Car rental apps are starting to become easier to use with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, as the company adds more to its Alexa platform.
Alexa is already a huge part of the Amazon Echo, but the new Echo Dot and Echo Dot Plus are now Alexa-enabled.
This means that if you’re looking to rent a car, you can now ask Alexa for a car rental service.
Alexa also now lets you ask your Amazon Echo to read your car’s manual and check for service updates.
There are a couple of more Alexa features on the Echo Dot, including a feature that lets you control your Echo Dot from your smartphone.
The Echo Dot also has a new feature called “Find Your Way” that lets users set up their Echo Dot to act like a navigation device, and it also allows users to check out the weather, listen to music and read local news.
The Alexa-powered Echo Dot is available on Amazon’s website and on the Amazon app for iOS and Android.
You can find more details on the Alexa-ready Echo Dot here.
Car rentals can now be purchased using credit cards and PayPal.
There’s no need to sign up for a credit card, as Amazon has partnered with Chase to allow you to use PayPal for car rental payments.
If you don’t already have a Chase credit card account, you’ll need to create one.
Car rental websites will be able to integrate PayPal payments into the Alexa app and on Amazon.com.
You’ll also be able tap the PayPal icon on the bottom of the Alexa interface and select “Payment with PayPal.”
Once you select PayPal, you will be prompted to verify your credit card details, and you will receive a confirmation message.
If your payment doesn’t work, you may have to re-enter your PayPal information.
When your payment is processed, your car rental app will display a car reservation.
If it’s the correct car, Alexa will display an “OK” message.
When you tap the car reservation, Alexa also displays the current weather, the current traffic conditions, and the current time.
Car reservations are updated automatically on a weekly basis.
You should also note that if your car is not available for rental, you won’t be able add any new cars to your car rentals.
