Blue Link From Hyundai Moves Car Technology Even Further As They Integrate Voice Commands With Google Assistant
Hyundai Motors was one of the first automotive manufacturers that introduced Android Auto in their vehicles. They are now also integrating their newest infotainment and car-sharing system, named Blue Link, with Google Assistant. Hyundai car owners with the Blue Link enabled devices would not be able to send voice commands to their vehicles by using the service.
Ok Google Commands On The Hyundai
Hyundai owners would be able to send commands such as turning their vehicle engine on or off by using voice commands. Temperature can be set and destination can also be set in advance before stepping on to the vehicle. Owners can also use Google Assistant to ask information such as the weather.
Remote Charging For Plugin Vehicles Are Now Made Possible
Owners of Blue Link integrated Hyundai cars can give simple commands such as; "Ok Google, Find me a great steakhouse in Las Vegas." Or "Ok Google, ask Blue Link to Start my Tucson and set the temperature to 75 degrees." In summary, Blue Link Action can be used with Google Assistant to send destination to the cars' navigation system, activate horns and lights remotely, start or stop vehicle charging for plugin Hyundai vehicles and to start climate control remotely.
Consumers Find Smart Home Integration Convenient
Manish Mehrotra, Hyundai Motor Corporation's director of digital business planning and connected operations, said that consumers find the smart home integration appealing and that they are finding it useful and convenient. A customer, of course, needs to link his or her Blue Link account first to activate the service. Once activated, Google Assistant would then send the owner a Blue Link personal identification number. After which, remote Service commands will be sent to the Hyundai Vehicles. Customers with Blue Link-enabled vehicles can get the list of commands from Hyundai's official website. A demonstration of the service will be shown at Pepcom's Digital Experience ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show on January 4.
