With new products from both JBL and Anker sitting on your car’s cigarette lighter, you have easy access to Google Assistant with your voice.
This year’s CES is packed with a lot of products that come with Google Assistant in one way or another. Two of the products are JBL and Anker bag respectively.

JBL Link Drive and Anker Roav Bolt, as the two products are called, are both small sized goggles the size of a mobile charger for the car’s cigarette lighter, but they both have a special function. They both have built-in Google Assistant – or they communicate more directly with your phone via Bluetooth, which has Google Assistant installed.
The two car chargers have built-in microphones that can pick up your voice better than if you use the Android Auto app through your phone. In other words, you can use Google Assistant exclusively through voice commands with no difficulty with these two products – even when there is noise from the roadside, the JBL states that its product has two noise-canceling microphones.
Both products have RGB lights to indicate when Google Assistant listens and talks. Via Bluetooth 4.2 in the JBL Link Drive and Bluetooth 4.1 in Anker Roav Bolt, you can connect the products to both your phone and the car with Bluetooth so that the sound can come out via the car’s system. Another option is to connect a 3.5 mm jack plug and thus get the sound out to the car’s system.
JBL Link Drive has a price of $ 59.95 and can be purchased during the spring of 2019. The price of Anker Roav Bolt is little lower around $ 49. It can be pre-ordered on Anker’s website.
