Hey, guys how are you all…So if you’ve been on Amazon lately you probably noticed all the ads are running for their new echo Auto and honestly. They make some bold claims about that so they say just for anywhere from twenty-five to fifty dollars. You can buy this little device and equip your car with their voice assistant which can act as your copilot. Which can help you navigate send text calls and a lot more than that but what is the echo Auto. And does it do anything that your phone already cannot do what can you do with Echo Auto…
Lets you make the most of your time in the car add items to your to-do and shopping lists set reminders or manage your calendar. While your eyes stay on the road with location-based features echo Auto also helps you get to where you’re going. So I don’t want to make this video just a montage of me sitting in my car. Asking the echo Auto to do things so I think most of you probably already understand how a voice assistant. How well this device itself works and what kind of value it offers when you’re in a car.
So just a quick disclaimer I will be muting out any time I say the voice assistants name just in case you have one in your home. So we don’t accidentally summon it non-stop. So I want to get into a mechanical tour of this device to show you essentially. What it looks like so it’s small sample it’s a lightweight device and it’s not like anything. I’ve ever put in my car on the front you see you have eight different microphones now the eight microphones are important. Because that’s one of the big advantages to having this as opposed to just using your phone. So the eight microphones should make it easier for this device to hear. What you’re saying and interpret what you’re saying no matter where you are so road so obviously is not quiet.
You have the traffic you have wind you have music playing a lot going on then we have two buttons on the front one of them. It’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s to mute this so it does not listen to you this does not mute your music playing through your stereo. Then we have the little summon button right there. Which essentially summons the voice assistant on the bottom or sort of on the front side depending on how you have oriented. We have a little light bar right there and this light bar is a way for it to communicate with you while you’re driving. And while it’s you know interacting with you then on the right side we have two ports right there.
We have a micro USB now it does require that you plug this in at all times on the other side. Away from the ports, you’ll have a small little slot right there. And that is a very small very quiet speaker that can use during setup on the backside. You have a few little pads right there and a small magnet in the middle so this mounts. On to the air vent mount that it comes with so you get a few different things. In the box here first off is an in-car power adapter with dual USB. So you can power the echo auto and charge your phone at the same time.
