A Voice-Driven Driving App that Doesn't Require a Mount
A simple, non-distracting, car mode interface allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. You can wake up the app to accept a command by simply saying a trigger phrase such as "Hello Android", or you can use the large, driver-friendly, buttons.
Text and Drive Hands-Free
Choose how you want to handle incoming messages while driving. You can send an automatic reply or have the app read out your messages and give you a chance to respond by voice. You can also compose a new message at any time, send to multiple contacts, and access and reply to old messages. The app supports your cellular provider's SMS/MMS service, and provides optional add-ons for Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Hangouts, and Twitter.
No Need To Worry About Speech Recognition Accuracy
No speech recognition system is perfect. When texting and driving, if mistakes are made when dictating a SMS/MMS message, the app can send an audio attachment of your speech along with the text. If the receiver isn't sure what you said, then the audio can simply be played.
Hands-Free Phone Calls
Choose how you want to handle incoming calls. You can ignore them so you're not disturbed, send an automatic text message reply, or announce the call and optionally answer. You can also place an outgoing call using a simple voice command. Calls will automatically use your car's Bluetooth system or the phone's speakerphone.
Simply say something like "Navigate to Walmart", and the app will send your destination to your navigation app, which will start navigation automatically. Supports Google Maps, Waze, and others.
Music and Media Player Control
Use voice commands, large buttons, and simple swipe gestures to control music and media players such as Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Google Play Music, and many more. If supported by your player, you can even use voice searches. For example, say "Play Michael Jackson" to hear a classic song from the King of Pop.
When a new text message or phone call arrives, the app will automatically pause playback, allow you to handle the it, and then automatically resume when you're done.
Kindle and Audible Books
Because the app links to the Amazon Alexa voice service (just like the Amazon Echo line of devices), you can have any book in your Kindle or Audible library read out to you.
News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic
Get a summary of current news stories (which you can customize by category and source), learn how your favorite sports teams are doing, get weather forecasts, and check on your commute.
Review your calendar entries and add new ones. The app makes use of Alexa's ability to link to your Google calendar.
Through Alexa, you can set timers and alarms, and access to-do and shopping lists.
You can ask Alexa questions on a many topics, including: TV shows, movies, music, math, spelling, geography, and have it read Wikipedia entries.
Access the Full Power of Alexa
From your car, you can remotely control home appliances, buy items on Amazon, and gain access to more features through Alexa "skills" provided by others.
This app uses Accessibility services. This is used only to enable and disable split-screen mode automatically.
Works around a bug introduced in the latest version of Waze, that was sometimes causing Waze to crash when a destination was sent to it.
