AMAZON ECHO AUTO REVIEW: SO... HOW DUMB IS YOUR CAR?

 

My wife is practical. She always prefers to flip a switch or press a button, instead of asking Alexa or Google. And even though I'm the one who put a cheap smart speaker in every room of the house, I often have to agree: It's usually more reliable to...

Good Bluetooth adapter / speakerphone Can pick up voice commands over wind and music Makes music requests easy

Alexa is really dumb about location Doesn’t handle cellular handoffs well Car-friendly skills need an overhaul

Amazon Echo Auto review: Alexa just doesn't deliver as a co-pilot

 

The Amazon Echo Auto brings Alexa into your car, but it relies too much on your existing technology to be of much use.

Easy to set up and use ; Excellent microphone support

Doesn't work without a smartphone ; Functions mainly as an intermediary ; Bulky and bland industrial design

It won’t take long for the Echo Auto’s biggest issue to become apparent: It’s basically superfluous. Since you need to have a phone with you for it to work, it basically acts as a middledevice. It doesn’t do anything you can’t already do with your...

That “Alexa in your car” gadget (Echo Auto) is available for pre-order now

 

Thanks to Amazon, we pretty much have Alexa everywhere around the house. Our Amazon Echo Show 8 is on the kitchen bench, Echo Show 5 in our main bedroom, Echo Dot 3rd Gen with Clock in the nursery room, and other Echo speakers like the Echo Studio...

Amazon Echo Auto review: Alexa, take me home

 

Amazon's move into your car was an inevitable step for Alexa and the idea of voice control. Third parties had already embraced the idea of Alexa in the car before Amazon even arrived at the same destination with the Echo Auto.

Great voice control Familiar Alexa experience Easy route to making your car smart

Adds little to modern cars Doesn't handle location well Relies on phone connection Visual cables may not appeal

A definite win for those wanting to make their car smarter, bringing the Alexa experience - ease of communication by voice, music streaming, navigation, and easy access to any other services you've hooked up via Alexa - directly into your car.

Amazon Echo Auto Review UK

 

If you use Alexa a lot at home, then putting her in your car can be useful. The Echo Auto is compatible with most cars and is ideal if yours is older.

75% VERDICT The Echo Auto is an ideal choice for customers who want to make their car smarter and easier to control with their voice to access music and content along with skills and numerous other features. And if you can't bear to leave Alexa behind....

Small and affordable ; Connects through your smartphone ; Can make your car smarter ; Includes all of Alexa's skills

Needs to be connected to a visible cable at all times ; Air vent mount won't work for all ; Newer cars make some features redundant

The Echo Auto is an ideal choice for customers who want to make their car smarter and easier to control with their voice to access music and content along with skills and numerous other features. And if you can’t bear to leave Alexa behind. The Echo...

Echo Auto review: Alexa listens to you in the car

 

Echo Auto review: Well, Echo Auto is a small device that does everything that other Echo devices do, but ideally plays back via the music system in your car. Echo Auto is different from other devices from Amazon, for this is the first Echo that works...
