Best email app to play my emails on CarPlay

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: Is this the best CarPlay email app to read me my emails?

A: Actually Speaking Email CarPlay is the only (and therefore the best!) text-to-speech email app that meets Apple's strict criteria for CarPlay apps.

We've been developing voice based email apps since 2015 and have built a best of breed email voice controlled email reading app, which is the original Speaking Email for iPhone and Android. Based on the learnings from this we have released in 2020 a brand new email experience for Apple CarPlay.

We realised the need for a great app on the CarPlay platform with a clear focus on simply reading out email and keeping out of your way, rather than trying to do everything, like other assistants such as Siri, Cortana, or Google Now attempt.

Unlike Siri, it does not distract you with voice control or require your attention, but instead provides a great email client using your phone's native text-to-speech capability and a focus on safety while driving. 

Try it out and see if Speaking Email CarPlay becomes your favourite new email app.

What is Speaking Email CarPlay?
