Alexa can do almost anything, from booking at your favorite restaurant to ordering a pizza. These powers are not just for private life. You can take Alexa's amazing digital assistant features with you by putting them in your car. There are two options. First, you can buy a car that already has Alexa features. The electric SUV Audi e-tron, various Ford models since 2016, most newer Lexus models and many Lincoln and Toyota models have, for example, an integrated Alexa display. If you are not in the market for a new car and you currently do not have Alexa, a second option is available. You can purchase an accessory that will allow you to use Alexa in your car. Here's a look at accessories that do just that.
Speak Music's Muse is one of the first Alexa car accessories to hit the market. All you have to do is connect the small device via Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android phone. From there you can use all the regular features of Alexa. You can also control the car functions of your car, eg. For example, skipping tracks and increasing volume by connecting to the car's display via Bluetooth, USB or additional inputs. Although there is no official word, it looks like the Muse will be set in the near future. You should take this into account before you make a purchase.
Roav Viva Pro
With the Roav Viva Pro you get Alexa, a long-distance call and a charging station for your phone in one. It also has a convenient mute button to turn off the unit's microphone. To get started, connect Viva Pro to your car's cigarette lighter and then connect it to your phone via Bluetooth, Android Auto, Carplay, AUX-Out or FM transmission.
Amazon has released its own response to Alexa car accessories with the Echo Auto. The box-shaped device connects to the USB port or the lighter of your car. Then you can set it up with the Alexa app. The device allows you to use all of Alexa's regular features, including hands-free calling. It also has a mute button for the microphone. The availability of the Echo Auto is currently limited to the invitation of certain Amazon customers, but may soon open to all others.
