[Event Ended] Alexa Hits the Road

Roav is launching its revolutionary Alexa-enabled car charger, VIVA. To celebrate we’re giving away 20 units to members of our community. You can be one of the lucky recipients!

What is VIVA?

Glad you asked! VIVA (Vehicle Integrated Voice Assistant) is the first car charger to optimize Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa, for in-car use. With 2 sensitive MEMS mics and ambient noise cancellation technology, VIVA ensures that Alexa hears you in your car, just like she does at home. With VIVA, you get 100% hands-free voice control while you drive.

Enjoy turn by turn navigation…

…music streaming and hands-free calling…

…and Alexa’s constantly expanding library of 25,000+ skills, just by saying the word. But it gets better, VIVA can sync locally to your contacts list (nothing goes to the cloud) so you can ask Alexa to call anyone in your phone—not just other Alexa users.

How Do I Get One?

All you have to do is leave a comment saying what you are most excited for about Roav VIVA and click the share button to share it on Facebook or Twitter. We will randomly select 20 people to get a free VIVA and announce the winners on January 18th.

We’ll also send a fan-exclusive discount code when VIVA launches, so everyone can benefit!

I’m looking forward to using Alexa on VIVA to turn on the lights in my house as I’m pulling in the driveway! No more stumbling around the house when I enter the door.


Sounds good we already had discussions about the product. Is there an option to subscribe to a list where you can get new about new products? Or do we have to read the verge and other websites to know that Anker has now also a small Power

I’m loving the Roav Viva so much. It’s a great way to get true hands free in a car that doesn’t have the newest technology. I would most definitely use it for hands free calling and playing my fav tunes (Liam Gallagher, Kasabian, Oasis plus a bit of Little Mix and Ed Sheeran for the kids), all to often I find myself having to touch my phone to do these things.

Then the bonus of being able to ask Alexa to turn the heating on (Nest) and Lights (Hue) when I am getting closer to home.

What a perfect little device :ok_hand:

I used to own a Vauxhall Viva back in the late 80’s. It wasn’t as cool as this but did get me about hehehe

I’ve noted the US only T&C but I want one lol


Haveing Alexa would be awesome!

It would be great to have for hands free in our car that doesn’t have that option. Will make long trips so much easier!!!


This is literally exactly what I’ve been hoping for since I first got my Alexa enabled devices in my home. I have always wanted to bring her with me to make my driving experience more enjoyable. Can you imagine how helpful this will be during road trips?!?!?

I can’t wait to have Alexa in my car. She already controls everything in the house will be nice to have some voice activation from the car. Plus she always listens when the wife doesn’t haha!!:smile:

I really like that I can have car play in my car with this. I’ve gotten accustomed to Alexa in my house, and having voice command in my house, it’ll be pretty awesome have it in my car too. And charging on top of it?
