Hyundai to Include Remote Vehicle Tech
May 8, 2019—Using an assistant-enabled smart speaker, Smart Display or Android or iOS phone, Hyundai owners soon will be able to do things like start their car from the kitchen, set their car's temperature from the comfort of their couch, or make sure their car doors are locked while in the grocery store more efficiently.
Google is previewing enhanced remote vehicle controls with Hyundai's Blue Link at Google I/O this week.
The new integration will allow vehicle owners to control and get the status of their vehicle with just one or two voice commands. It will be available within the coming months.
Hyundai owners can now incorporate these Blue Link remote commands into a Google Assistant morning routine to get a head start on their commute. For example, an owner can easily add vehicle actions to a ready-made "Good morning" routine to trigger their Assistant to brief them on the weather, share a traffic update, and tell them how much charge their Kona Electric has, just by saying "Hey Google, good morning."
