Alexa on your Apple Watch (standalone, no phone required), your iPhone and iPad.
Control your home devices, ask general questions, add items to your shopping list and set timers etc. It is an Alexa implementation. On your wrist.
Here are three things you should know before getting this app:
1. Not all audio content can be supported. Amazon don't allow third-party apps such as this app to play music, audio books or some daily-news content.
2. You can use a Siri Shortcut to launch the app and start speaking, just by raising your wrist on Apple Watch. See the support page on how to configure.
3. The phone controls installation of the app to the watch, not the app. Put your watch on a charger to speed up install time.
If you have questions or any support issues please email me (email@example.com) ... I'm an independent sole-developer doing this as a side-project.
Please do reach out, I want to help.
Voice in a Can is in no way associated with Amazon.
Minor cosmetic change: The icon you tap to start speaking has been updated.
Ratings and Reviews
One star reviews need to chill out
I really like this app! I saw some of the negative reviews but after reading the developer’s responses I decided to try it for myself. It sounds like it’s just one person working on this and what it does is so useful. I use it to turn on my lamp mostly and it’s nice being able to ask Alexa instead of Siri on my apple device. I gave it 4 starts out of five because I believe it can be optimized a little. Also I think updating the app logo, flashing up the interface and a name change might help sell it a better. I have it on the front screen of my Apple watch and just wished it looked a little cooler. Lol. Still a really great app so keep up the awesome work :)
Dues not work well
I have a recent apple watch. I was hoping this app would be like the reverb app for the iPhone. The reverb app is super simple to use and just works. The voice in a can app needs a lot of improvement. Everytime you start it there is a process it needs to go through before you can use it. First it needs to start. Then synchronize. Then authenticate. Then it often tells me that I seem to be offline when I am not. Then it just started listening with no interaction from me and then I have to tap it to get it to stop listening. By this time in the process I have been standing and starting at my watch for about 45 seconds to a full min. I could have used my phone to do what I want.
When the app finally does receive a command, it is often not able to execute it. I hope this app improves since I paid for it.
Developer Response ,
I released an update in March 2019 which improves performance significantly (version 1.0.19). Could you give it a go and consider updating your review? firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues.

This app is the entire reason I bought the Apple watch
Apple wasn’t getting another dime from me until I heard about this app. I. Love. Alexa. Like I can’t even explain how much I use Alexa. My kids laugh at me because I forget she’s not in the car. Siri and I had a huge falling out after that maps glitch when she got me lost in the middle of nowhere. Forget which iOS that was but it’s over forever. Anyway this app works great with my v3 watch and I love being able to control my mass array of smart home gadgets with it from anywhere. Truly a life changer.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review.
As an independent sole developer doing this in my spare time it can be a little dispiriting to see negative reviews citing issues that are out of my control.
It's encouraging and uplifting to see this kind of review. Thanks!
