Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT support should reach TiVo set-tops over the next few months, so you'll need to be patient.

"As we continue to evolve Android as a platform for consumers and across industries, leveraging the expertise from a partner like Panasonic allows us to deliver automotive-grade in-vehicle experiences", said Patrick Brady, VP of Android engineering at Google.

TiVo announced that smart home integration with Alexa and Google Assistant will make a lot of the features you already use with their devices better. In late 2017, Juniper Research reported that smart devices like the Amazon Echo, Google Home and Sonos One will be installed in 55 percent of US households by 2022. Past year at CES Alexa was already in hundreds of third-party devices and the company says it has sold "tens of millions" of it s devices. Alexa integration is planned for more Toyota models next year, according to a statement. The DVR company has just announced that integration with these two digital voice assistants is on the way for TiVo products, allowing you to consume your DVR content in better ways. "And in the auto a true automotive assistant, which knows what drivers want and how cars work, is probably a better choice for the "driving" end of that interface than a general goal assistant coming from the home environment".
