No more boring commutes or fumbling with our phones in the car! We can finally be productive and entertained while keeping our eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Order yours and help make driving fun and safe for everyone.
Muse Auto brings the power and convenience of Amazon Alexa to the car. Just plug it in, pair with your smartphone and say "Alexa".
With Muse Auto in your car, you can ask Alexa to play your music, news, and audiobooks, control your garage door or home security, manage your to-dos, take care of shopping, and more, all with your voice!
THE POWER OF ALEXA - IN YOUR CAR
What would you do if you had an intelligent and highly versatile assistant in your car? Unlike your phone's native assistant, Alexa does not ask you to unlock your phone. It has over 25,000 skills that work with just your voice.
NO SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED
Muse Auto offers the best hands and eyes-free audio entertainment in the car without requiring a paid music subscription. Voice control music from your favorite artists, popular radio stations, millions of podcasts with free services like iHeartRadio and TuneIn.
Muse Auto uses your iPhone or Android phone's standard data plan, and it works with a free Amazon account. Want on-demand music? Amazon Music ($7.99), Prime Music (free for Prime members) and SiriusXM are already supported. Spotify and Pandora support is planned as a free update.
Safety in the car is of paramount importance to us. That's why Muse Auto has a built-in Bluetooth receiver that can add wireless streaming and hands-free calling to your car. Hear the caller from your car stereo and speak with confidence with our best-in-class noise-canceling microphone.
EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED
The box includes everything you need to get set up in most cars. It includes the Muse Auto device and the magnetic mount. We've also included a dual USB car charger so you can power Muse Auto and charge your phone! All you need is an Android or iOS phone with cellular data plan, and of course, a car.
SUPER EASY INSTALLATION
Muse Auto fits nicely into any car and takes less than 3 minutes to set up. It comes with a 6.5-foot long cable and removable magnetic mount that gives you the flexibility to place it on the dash, in the center console, or wherever you like.
PRIVACY WHEN YOU NEED IT
Muse Auto features hardware-level mute so that you can turn off any and all audio going into Muse Auto. Just hold and release the Microphone button to turn on mute and neither Muse Auto nor Alexa will hear anything.
