Anker Innovations designed a new device, which allows to safely stay connected and use your phone hands-free while on the road. It is called Roav Bolt, and it is built to work with Android devices, bringing the Google Assistant to almost any car. A user can just say “Hey Google,” when they’re in the car or tap the button on Roav Bolt to find the nearest coffee shop, play their favorite song or podcast, navigate home, read texts, make calls, set reminders and check their schedule for the day.

Roav Bolt plugs into car’s charging socket, connecting to users’ phone’s Bluetooth and then to their car’s stereo. The far-field built-in mics on the Roav Bolt ensure that Assistant hears a user clearly, whether their phone is locked or stashed away.

The Roav Bolt will also be available for iOS in a beta experience with limited capabilities, to begin with. You can find the Roav Bolt online and in-store at major retailers, including Best Buy retail locations, bestbuy.com, and walmart.com for $49.99.
