    Anker's Roav Bolt brings Google Assistant to your car's 12V socket, even with an iPhone

    2 monthes ago - By PC World

    If you want to summon Google Assistant in your car, you basically have two options: Enable “Hey Google” and Smart Lock on your Android phone or launch Android Auto (should you be lucky enough to have a car with it built in). But with the new Roav Bolt , Anker gives us a third option, and even iPhone users can get in on it. Like the Alexa-powered Roav Viva , the Bolt plugs into your car's 12V socket and connects via Bluetooth or an auxiliary jack. A pair of USB ports lets you keep your phone charged while driving, and a single button on the front lets you manually summon Google Assistant...

    Google has a new tool to help you save money.
    Do you ever feel like your spending on apps gets a little out of control? If so, then Google has a new way to put the power back in your hands with budgeting. This new feature is rolling out quietly and shows up under your account settings in the Google Play app. It is not supported via the web interface, so you'll need to use your phone or tablet in order to access this feature.

    Anker's Roav Bolt charger works like a Google Home Mini in your car

    2 monthes ago - By The Verge

    The Roav Bolt by Anker is a weird little product. It's a car charger with two USB ports that fits into a lighter plug. It's also sort of like a tiny little Google Home Mini, complete with two microphones specially tuned to cancel out echo and noise in a car. It even has the traditional 4 LED lights you see on top of the Home Mini when it's active. It's available today at Best Buy for $49.99.
    After using it for a few hours over the weekend, I came away a little impressed, but not so much that I think it's an obvious buy for many people. If you've got an older car and live completely in the...
