I have enabled it. Not unlocking the car though!

Quite cool for asking how much fuel you have, whether the cars locked or getting it to start ventilation. Nothing I could see myself using regularly though!

I think you have the existing Stage 1 Alexa enabled allowing you to ask Alexa at home your range etc etc. This is stage 2 where its integrated in the car. Its been pulled for months and it looks like its back

I would be interested in that update. Any idea when its going to be made available as it still appears to be stage 1 only on the android app.

I can only find Stage one and not Stage 2 integration.

Selecting Alexa in Hub Section of ConnectedDrive App does not offer ĎAmazon Alexa Car Integrationí

Has anyone else done this on a G20 in the UK?

I have spoken to Connecteddrive about this again over the weekend, honestly they haven't a clue.

I guess one day an update done in the car will make a change and the app will appear, then you could link it to the Alexa account.

I wont hold my breath though.

Forgive my ignorance, whatís stage 1 and stage 2 integration with this?

Iíve had Alexa linked via ConnectedDrive (iOS) for some months, from Alexa in the house you can command the car to; unlock, ventilate/heat, check range and prob some other stuff. You canít do anything with it/Alexa in the car though.

Interestingly, when Iíve followed the guidance in that video (mine is already set up) - my Alexa app tells me the BMW skill is no longer available? Not sure if thatís because Iíve got it and use it, or it really has dropped off? It still works anyway as have used it today.

Doesnít seem to be any integration in the new My BMW app yet.

Hello stage 1 is what's always been there. With Alexa at home you can get her to tell you it's locked, range etc.

Stage 2 is integration with the car. Over the past 2 years I have heard so many different stories - from BMW. Most haven't a clue. It was pulled months ago (as per usual BMW didn't tell anyone) and I've heard every story from Connecteddrive under the sun such as

It's coming
It's never been pulled you can have it now! Go do a service update!
It's never coming back
What? Alexa in the car?
2021
Your car can't have it (I drive 7 330e) what utter rubbish.


They build great cars but as for support they have a long long way to go

Then the video was released so I guess it's got to be coming

Aha! Cheers... I think Iíd somehow watched the wrong video! Having watched the one in the post above and with your note, makes perfect sense now!
