As per the details offered by a recent report of TechCrunch, an overwhelming amount of car owners wants to have an Echo Auto in their cars. Since the launch, the pre-orders for Echo Auto have reached over 1 million. Essentially, the product turns your car into an Alexa device via 3.5mm AUX jack or with the aid of a smartphone’s existing Bluetooth setup.
When compared to the recently announced figure of 100 million sold Alexa devices, 1 million pre-orders seem pretty miniscule. However, it should be adopted into consideration that this Echo product is intended specifically for cars and the only way to buy it is through an invite, which implies, in theory, it translates into much more popularity for Echo Auto rather than the usual Alexa products that are meant for homes.
Notably, several third-party alternatives of Echo Auto are also available in the market such as Anker’s Viva adapter which retails for $50 and allows you to navigate map instructions with voice commands, control music, attain weather information and a bunch of other stuff, exactly like you do with Alexa.
Also, infotainment systems from premium car makers such as Toyota, Ford, Audi, and BMW are integrated directly into Alexa but as we all know that’s rather an insignificant portion of the auto industry.
