Voice in a Can brings Alexa to your Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad. It works on your watch standalone, without needing your phone.
Not all content is supported, for example audio books, music, podcasts and some flash briefings.
When your screen goes blank on your watch it disconnects from the Alexa service, so we recommend increasing the app timeout on your watch. Also, the best results will be obtained when your watch is operating without your phone nearby because then it will connect directly to the internet and not use your phone to connect.
Although it works with older watches and slow connections, we recommend using a Series 3 watch or later.
Improved VoiceOver support (accessibility) on the Apple Watch, so that VoiceOver speach doesn't get picked up by the Alexa Voice Service when you tap the Start/Stop button.
Ratings and Reviews
Super slow app
Where to start, Lovely little app first to have apple watch support but SUPER SLOW! I really wish this app should have been designed by some experienced developers so they can do better work this. Other competitive apps like Reverb and Swift works superfast and 10 times faster response and they are FREE. For a paid app I would like this to be atleast 10 times faster. On this app commands from iphone x take average 20/25 secs to response and commands from apple watch over 30 sec. Very frustrating, wish they can speed this up. I am on BT infinity 150Mbs and still this app is super slow, waste of £1.99 but handy for a bit of show off on apple watch, wish you guys can speed this up in next patch update. Good luck
Thanks for taking the time to review. I am working on performance updates, and it does work well for others. If you’d like to sign up for betas at email@example.com you can help give feedback as I work to improve it.
I can never be as fast as a phone based app given that the watch has a fraction of the phone’s CPU and battery, but there is room for improvement after this initial release.
I love it
We haven’t the best internet service even with optic fibre and with the reviews not being great I didn’t expect alot from this product. I am very pleasantly surprised managing my alexa remotely with my watch is great and often more reliable than alexa directly. I haven’t found the product particularly slow or unreliable and this is why I’ve written this review.
Fantastic an a steal at this price!!!
Just what is needed to fuse two great systems together. Really looking forward to watching this very useful App progressing. I am attempting to reduce Coffee consumption and have my iKettle set to 100 C, so that Tea is uppermost in mind. When the NEED for a Coffee is to hard to bear it is convenient to quickly set the Temperature to 80 C, while approaching the Kitchen, by speaking into my Watch 4. Great work thank you.
