Being surrounded in your home by speakers that support Alexa is fantastic, but what happens when you leave the house? You can use Alexa on your smartphone if you dig around and open Amazon’s app, but not all of its features are supported. Plus, the great thing about Alexa is hands-free access, so why should you have to dig through apps to use Alexa on the go? The Roav Viva by Anker is the solution to your problem. It’s basically an Echo Dot for your car that plugs into the power port and gives you access to anything and everything Alexa has to offer. It costs $57 on Amazon, but a 15% coupon available on the site right now drops the price to just $48 and change.
