Today, we’re happy to share a collaboration with Amazon Alexa to bring Alexa voice control to the Logitech ZeroTouch™ Air Vent and Logitech ZeroTouch Dashboard smart car mounts. Now, you can use the power of your voice to interact with Alexa and your smart home devices in your car, on the road.
The Logitech ZeroTouch already allows you to use the power of your voice to place calls, text back and forth, and engage with apps, such as Yelp – while keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Now, with this collaboration, you can quickly access the weather and news or your favorite Alexa skills that are enabled on your Alexa account. You can also ask Alexa to control smart home devices – right from the driver’s seat, before you even get home – such as your thermostat, smart lights or smart lock. So, imagine telling Alexa to close the garage after you’ve left for work for the day. Or, telling her to change the thermostat on your way home from work.
In addition to Alexa, Logitech updated the voice-controlled app, so the Logitech ZeroTouch can also read out and respond to emails, accept or decline calendar invites, and read out calendar meetings for the day.
The updated ZeroTouch app with the Alexa feature is now available in the U.S. and UK for free on the Google Play store. Users need an Amazon account to access the newest Alexa feature within the voice-controlled app.
