Speak Music, the voice and AI company behind the Melody
platform, a personal music assistant, today announced the launch of Muse, its first pure Amazon Alexa-enabled device for the car. With Speak Music's technology and Alexa's over 25,000 voice skills, Muse brings unparalleled entertainment and productivity to the road without compromising safety.
Muse is a small Bluetooth accessory that works with your smartphone to enable access to Alexa and streaming audio entertainment. With built-in, hands-free wake word detection, you can simply say "Alexa" to activate the voice service and safely experience nearly all of Alexa's functionalities from behind the wheel. Enhance your commute with hands and eyes-free access to music artists, playlists, live radio, news, audiobooks, podcasts and Alexa services such as timers, voice ordering, and more.
Muse also lets you control your smart home from the car. Close the garage door and turn on your home security system as you drive off, and set the perfect temperature as you arrive, all with your voice. Check the weather, stock quotes, sports scores, manage your to-do's and stay productive while in your car.
Thanks to Muse's extensive connectivity, you can enjoy all the content on the vast majority of car stereo systems by connecting Muse through Bluetooth, USB or AUX inputs. On many tech equipped vehicles, Muse will take advantage of the car's multimedia system to advance songs with your steering wheel controls and displays "Now Playing Information" provided by Alexa such as album art and weather images.
Muse also features Bluetooth calling through the car stereo, with HD voice and best-in-class noise cancellation and enables hands-free calling for cars not equipped from the factory.
"We are incredibly excited to bring Muse with Amazon Alexa to cars," said Zak Mandhro, Co-Founder & CTO of Speak Music. "The fusion of innovative hardware, voice technology and artificial intelligence has enabled us to deliver the ultimate voice experience for the car - bringing entertainment, productivity, utility and safety to the drive."
For $49.99, Muse Powered by Amazon Alexa can now be preordered for holiday delivery with limited discounted quantities at museauto.com.
