Right now, via Amazon, it is possible to pick up the extremely popular Echo Auto at one of the lowest prices that it has been sold for. For just $39.99 – representative of a 20% discount – it is possible to pick up the Echo Auto and bring Alexa to your car with minimal muss and maximum efficiency.

Amazon is clearly trying to take over the world with its own hardware and, of course, with the Alexa software running on that hardware. Now, depending on your stance, that can either be a good thing or a bad thing. For those people who have embraced Alexa and who love the convenience and power that having a voice-activated digital assistant offers, it makes total sense to expand that functionality into the one place that it hasn’t really touched yet; the car. That is exactly what Echo Auto does.

So yes, Echo Auto adds Alexa to your car or another motorized vehicle. But why would you want to do that we hear you ask? If you want to know the weather at your destination, simply ask Alexa via the Echo Auto and you get the information right away. If you have forgotten to turn off a smart socket in your property or want to turn the heating down with something like your Tado smart thermostat, this lets you do that whilst driving. If you want to play a variety of digital radio stations not otherwise available in your vehicle, then Echo Auto can facilitate that.

It connects to your smartphone and uses the installed Alexa app to get its power. The Echo Auto comes with 8 microphones and far-field technology allowing it to hear commands over other noises in the vehicle, such as playing music, external road-noise, or even noisy air conditioning units. It also has a very handy button that lets you immediately turn the microphone off and it can be used to immediately invoke phone calls and perform a whole host of tasks using your voice.

Check out the deal below and make sure to read through the vehicle compatibility list on the product page to ensure that Echo Auto is compatible with your car. If it is, then you’re in line for a great discount on an impressive portable product.
