Hyundai and Google Assistant Partner Up for Home/Car Connectivity

January 25th, 2017 by

Picture this: It’s a cold, frosty morning in Downers Grove, IL. You’re running late for work and your car still needs to be warmed up. What if there was a way to start up your vehicle from the comfort of your home? For Hyundai drivers, now there is! Google and Hyundai have partnered up to help you get on the road with ease. Hyundai models with Blue Link will be able to regulate key vehicle controls, like vehicle start-up and temperature control, by using the Google Assistant command, ‘Ok Google’. Hyundai drivers who would like to take advantage of this technology need Blue Link capabilities in their Hyundai as well as a Google Home speaker or another Google Assistance device such as Android Wear™ and Apple Watch™ smartwatches.
