Anker today announced a new addition to its Roav lineup of in-car tech — the Roav Bolt. As well as being a dual-USB car charger to keep your devices topped up on the road, the $50 Bolt adds Google Assistant directly to your car.
While you may already be familiar with the Alexa-enabled Roav Viva, the Bolt brings the Google Voice Assistant along for the ride for the first time giving you hands-free control over all manner of things on your Bluetooth-connected smartphone.
Thanks to its noise-cancelling mic, the Bolt can pick up your voice commands clearly while the Assistant acts on them. You can control music playback, enable navigation, read and reply to messages, make calls, ask about your day ahead, and more — everything you expect from Google's hands-free helper. Voice notifications also keep you up to speed on incoming messages and reminders while you drive.
Pre-orders are open at the Anker Roav website and the Bolt is expected to ship next month.
