3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay from my experience, some things work and some don't
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on August 2, 2020
I was super excited for this. The biggest things I wanted to do as I'm driving is adding a note or reminder for myself, sending a WhatsApp message, getting directions or play songs or even play my liked songs on Spotify. Alexa Auto is able to do some of those things but not all.

It was easy to setup and is surprisingly very small. I am able to tuck it away neatly in my car's pen holder slot and it fits in there with lots of room to spare. With my setup, it has no issues hearing me as well under most circumstances which is quite impressive so the microphones work very well in my opinion. The Alexa Auto feels like good build quality as well. I like the lights on it which aren't super bright and are modern looking, almost like a Knight Rider style light when you're talking to Alexa Auto even though I know Knight Rider is not modern.

It was quite easy to setup in the Alexa Android app, by clicking on the plus icon in the top corner and selecting Alexa Auto as a new device you want to add. It found the Alexa Auto and I was all setup in a couple of minutes.

It works great at getting driving directions for me that I ask for and taking me home or to work after I had set my home and work address in the Alexa app.

Alexa unfortunately can't send a WhatsApp message and gives a message if I try to send a WhatsApp message saying that skill is not available yet. I hope it will be available one day because that would significantly change my mind on this product as I use WhatsApp a ton.

The good news is that I have never had a problem with Alexa hearing me even with the windows rolled all the way down on the city roads. Naturally on the highway it gets very loud with wind noise when the windows are rolled all the way down and Alexa can understandably not hear me sometimes.

Alexa is generally good at understanding me but does sometimes misinterpret what I say. With Spotify it's able to play a specific song if I ask it to or songs by a specific artist. Unfortunately, it doesn't do anything when I ask Alexa Auto to play songs or play my liked songs which is what I normally do. Not sure why this issue persists.

I am contemplating returning this as for me it's a very big deal I can't send WhatsApp messages since I'm an avid WhatsApp user. Also I can't play my liked songs from Spotify via Alexa Auto but I'd like to note that feature works with my Echo Show 5 so it's an Alexa Auto specific issue. Both of these things though can likely be fixed via software and are not an issue for hardware. If you are okay with regular SMS text messaging and not a big Spotify user like me, then this could be a great product for you.
