Description

Bring Ford+Alexa with You on the Road: Access to Alexa in your Ford is now as easy as connecting your phone, starting the Ford+Alexa app and speaking to Alexa. Even with road noise, Alexa listens and provides you with the same information and access to Skills and features as you can get with an Echo in your home. Alexa’s familiar voice and responses then play through your vehicle’s speakers. You can access thousands of Alexa skills and services that Echo customers already enjoy. Pump yourself up on the way to the gym by saying, “Alexa, play my workout playlist.” Continue the book you were listening to, even during your commute to work. Check whether you have dinner plans on the drive home by asking, “Alexa, what’s on my calendar tonight?”

• Alexa Capabilities: You will have access to most the same capabilities as you do from home, including controlling your smart home devices, ordering pizza, checking the weather, getting your favorites sports teams scores, checking and updating your schedule and more.
• Navigation: You can ask Alexa for a point of interest (POI) and ask Alexa to navigate to the POI. Alexa will hand off the POI to the onboard navigation when equipped or to your phone to provide you with turn by turn directions.
• Entertainment: Using Amazon Music, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio you will be able use Alexa to play music (skip, fast forward, rewind, play, and pause) and even make song purchases. The vehicle’s display will show artist, song, and album art information.

SYNC 3 Software Version 2.2 or higher is required. You can check the Software Version on the SYNC 3 touchscreen by pressing: Settings > General > About SYNC.

Questions

Is the “Wake Word” ever going to get fixed?

Why does Apple Car play have to be disconnected for this feature?

Other than this the ability to have Alexa in my vehicle is truly amazing but these 2 things really need fixed.

Developer Response ,

Sorry for the inconvenience. Due to iOS restrictions, the app must be opened in the foreground on your device first to activate the "wake word" feature. Unfortunately, there are limitations with Apple CarPlay at the moment.

Don’t waste your time

I only gave this app 1 star. If I could have, I would have given it 0 stars. I followed all the instructions as requested to install it. It’s totally stupid that I have to open the app every time on my phone in order to play in my car. Most of the time my car won’t even recognize this app! Then the next time I get in my car it will work. When it does work, I’m finding that it will play the same song again after just playing it. I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall this app several times to get it to work in my car again. Good luck to those of you who want to install it!

Fun app

Really fun experience playing games with my kids in the car and for listening to music. I like how it provides a safe option to use Alexa in the car without having to use my phone
