Amazon’s strategy is very clear. Alexa must be present always and everywhere. The e-commerce giant recently launched its first smart clock, and it also wants to conquer your car.

Echo Auto

Amazon does not have a custom interface for cars such as Apple Carplay or Android Auto, which prevents the company from working in certain countries already together. The company is already working with car brands such as Toyota, Ford, Lexus, BMW, and Audi to enable smart assistance.

The Echo Auto does even better because the device can take Alexa to any car. It is a device that Alexa brings to your car. Echo Auto determines your location so that it can automatically activate location-based smart home routines. When you have reached the driveway of your home, it can automatically activate your heating, play music or light up lights.

It is striking that Amazon, despite the lack of its own smart interface for cars, still hopes to find its way to your car thanks to a relatively inexpensive accessory. The Echo Auto costs $50 i.e 43 euros and Amazon promises a big discount for early adopters of the product. A car is a place where speech assistants can be very useful for obvious reasons.
