That drive to work can be a little dreary. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have Alexa help you spend the time with music, podcasts, the weather, directions, etc.? You can have that for under $20. Get an Amazon Echo Auto with Alexa and have the comfort of Alexa in your car.
The small device connects to the Alexa app on your phone using your car’s speakers via auxiliary input or a Bluetooth connection with your phone. It connects to your car via a vent mount. Amazon created it specifically to add convenience to your car trips, employing eight microphones and far-field technology to allow it to hear you over the traffic, your music, air conditioning, etc.
Your boredom with the same local radio stations ends here. You can control the Amazon Echo Auto through the Alexa app on your phone and ask it to stream Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, SiriusXM, Audible, and radio stations via TuneIn and iHeartRadio. Catch up on your favorite podcasts, too, and be fully entertained.
Along with playing music and other entertainment, you can also ask Alexa to check the news, make calls, add to your to-do list, check the weather, arrange your calendar events, check off items on your shopping list, and more. Don’t worry about your privacy, as you can turn the microphones off electronically at any time.
Disclaimer: Echo Auto is not compatible with all cars and phones. It won’t work with some cars that support Bluetooth and is not compatible with some styles of air vents. Check the phone availability and car listings before purchasing.
If you’re ready to buy the Amazon Echo Auto with Alexa, take $30 off the normal listing price and pay just $19.99.
