Amazon's Echo technology comes to UK cars for the first time with the Amazon Echo Auto. Ask Alexa to play your favourite music, answer questions, stream podcasts and radio stations, provide directions, find nearby businesses and make calls with the power of your voice alone.

Slim and lightweight, the Echo Auto connects to Alexa through your smartphone's Alexa app and plays through your car's speakers via auxiliary input or your phone's Bluetooth connection. The eight in-built microphones will capture your voice even over the noise of a busy road, music or air conditioning, while the hands-free operation allows you to focus on driving.

The Echo Auto is simple to set up and starts within a few seconds:

  1. Plug the Echo Auto into your car's USB port or cigarette lighter and mount it to an air vent
  2. Open the Alexa app on your smartphone to begin setup
  3. Set your car stereo to Bluetooth or auxiliary and adjust the volume (this needs to be done before each drive)
  4. Ask Alexa to play your favourite music, answer questions and more

The Echo Auto comes with a variety of options to protect your privacy, such as the ability to turn off the microphones and delete recordings. An air vent mount is also included in the box, which allows your Echo Auto to be easily secured inside your car.


FAQs

Echo Auto connects to most cars that support Bluetooth to play music or that have an auxiliary input. If you cannot connect devices to your car via Bluetooth or auxiliary cable to play music, then you may be able to connect Echo Auto with an additional accessory like an FM Transmitter or Cassette Adapter. You can check if your car or phone is not compatible here.

The included air vent mount is not compatible with some style of air vents. Check if your vehicle's air vents are compatible with the included mount here.

Echo Auto is the first Echo device designed for use on the road, giving you an easy and affordable way to add the power of Alexa on the go. With 8 microphones and far-field technology, Echo Auto can hear you over music, A/C, and road noise.

With Echo Auto, just ask Alexa to hear your morning news, listen to an Audible audiobook and more. You can also set reminders to pick up your dry cleaning on your way home, control your smart home devices, build your shopping list or manage your calendar—all while your eyes stay on the road.

Echo Auto includes many of the things people love about Alexa and adds new, auto-specific features like navigation and car controls. With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter. Skills are like apps and help you do more, such as playing road trip games, with Pointless, Beat the Intro and BBC Kids to finding the cheapest petrol station with the Petrol Prices skill. Just say, "Alexa, what are your top skills?"

Unlike your smartphone, Echo Auto is built to use while driving, similar to how you communicate already with hands-free technology. To make it even safer, the Alexa app on your smartphone will also display a safety warning to discourage you from using it while driving. Echo Auto is designed for use in the car with eight microphones to counter external and internal noise, giving you the ability to add milk to your shopping list, continue your audiobook or make a call – all by using your voice.

Simple to set up and use

  2. Use the Alexa app to begin setup.
  3. Before every drive, set your car stereo to Bluetooth or auxiliary input and adjust the volume on your phone and stereo.
  4. Just ask Alexa for music, news, and more.

You can use Echo Auto to cue smart home actions.  For example, set reminders to pick up your dry cleaning on your way home, control your smart home devices, build your shopping list or manage your calendar—all while your eyes stay on the road.
