It is the tool that brings Amazon Alexa into your car, simply and immediately
Amazon Echo Auto finally arrives in Italy, it is the first Echo device designed for use on the road to bring all the potential of Alexa on the road.
Echo Auto is already on sale on Amazon.it/echoauto at a price of € 59.99.
Many customers have indicated to us their desire to have access to Alexa wherever they are.
We are happy to offer them an easy way to add Alexa to their car.
With Echo Auto, customers can now enjoy all the comfort guaranteed by Alexa on the go, with the ability to play music, make phone calls, continue listening to their audiobooks, play video games, manage their memos and much more – all this by simply using their voice.
Echo Auto is supported by 8 microphones, placed in order to work correctly with the internal acoustics of a car.
This solution makes Alexa capable of listening to voice controls even in the presence of music or the noise of the air conditioning and the street. Among the various “challenges” of Alexa, the one with the noises of the cockpit is perhaps one of the most complex.
Echo Auto is powered by the 12V socket or the USB port in the car and connects to the stereo system via an audio cable with a 3.5mm jack or via Bluetooth.
The small device connects to Alexa through the appropriate application on the smartphone and is obviously compatible with both iOS and Android.
To connect, take advantage of the customer’s existing data plan, offering access to many features such as music, phone calls and more.
For example, just ask Alexa to listen to your daily news, an Audible audiobook and simply your favorite streaming radio.
It will also be possible to set memos, control devices for the Smart Home, create the shopping list or manage your own agenda without taking your eyes off the road.
There are already tens of thousands of skills and the portfolio is constantly growing; thanks to all external applications, Alexa becomes smarter.
I remind you that Skills are like apps on smartphones and allow you to give many commands to smart home devices or perform common actions, such as playing relaxing music or testing your musical knowledge. To discover new skills, just ask: “Alexa, what are the best skills?”
