SEATTLE, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Anker Innovations, a global leader in charging technology and a developer of innovative consumer electronics, today announced the availability of the Roav Bolt, the first aftermarket car accessory to bring the Google Assistant to the car.
Car-Proof Voice Commands
Roav Bolt features a dual mic array that leverages noise-reduction technology and advanced audio algorithms to ensure the Google Assistant can hear you clearly in any driving condition.
Bluetooth & AUX
You can connect to your car through Bluetooth or AUX input, meaning the Roav Bolt will work in a wide variety of cars. Using the AUX input will provide the best assistant experience, including performing Echo cancellation, so that the assistant can hear you well, even when loud music is playing in the car.
Sleek, Stealthy and Ready to Charge
Roav Bolt can be quickly plugged into a car charger, and features a sleek and compact design topped with four LED lights to display the signature colors of the Google Assistant. Roav Bolt is also equipped with two USB ports that leverage Anker's PowerIQ technology to rapidly charge your mobile devices.
Designed with Android in Mind
Roav Bolt will use your Android phone's data connection to play responses and stream media through your car's audio system. It will even let you know when you get a new alert or message with proactive notifications from your Assistant.
Setup is as Easy as 1-2-3
- Plug Roav Bolt into the car charger
- Pair the Roav Bolt with your Android phone (much like a Bluetooth headset)1
- Just say "Hey Google"
Hit the Road With Google Assistant
Once connected, you can use your Roav Bolt and the Google Assistant to get directions to a new restaurant; send and receive messages; make a call; play your favorite songs and much more. Roav Bolt works even when your phone is locked and in your pocket, so you can seamlessly access your Assistant whenever you need it and keep your focus on driving.
Availability and Cost
Roav Bolt is now available at Best Buy for $49.99 MSRP and will also be available at Walmart and Target in the coming weeks.
