Bring Alexa on the road with these smart car accessories
When you have two hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road, it makes sense to use a voice assistant. Here are the latest smart car accessories that work seamlessly with the queen of assistants: Alexa.
- Can you use Alexa in your car? Yes! In fact, you can ask her questions anywhere you have a decent Wi-Fi or data connection.
- What Alexa skills can you use while driving? You can ask Alexa to put your favorite playlist on the stereo, check the traffic, and control smart devices at home.
- Is it safe to use Alexa while driving? Yes. You can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel — just like making a handsfree call.
According to the latest research, more than 120 million U.S. homes now have a smart speaker. But smart assistants can be useful outside your home, as well. If you would like to take Alexa on the road, these smart car accessories should be right up your street.
