  • Whether they’re interacting with Alexa through a device like Echo Auto, or through newer vehicles with Alexa built-in, it is important recognize when your skill may be used in a car.
  • Some design principles for in-car experiences that will be important to address are: keeping responses succinct, allowing customers to resume their interaction with your skill once they have left their cars (or vice-versa), being location-aware in your design, introducing pauses and breaks when customers need to maintain focus, and limiting your design to be voice-only.
