Hyundai will soon get help from Google Assistant to improve remote vehicle controls. Demonstrations happened last week at the Google I/O event in Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, California.
With the integration of Google Assistant in Hyundai’s Blue Link, Hyundai car owners will have better control of their vehicles such as commanding the assistant to lock their car doors while inside a convenience store, acquire the status of their cars, and set up a custom routine.
“Anytime we can make features better and easier to use for our customers we are going to do it,” said Manish Mehrotra, director, digital business planning and connected operations, Hyundai Motor America. “From being able to double check that their car doors are locked as they walk into a movie theater, or remote start their Sonata on a cold winter day using their Google Assistant device, we're excited to bring even more helpfulness to our customers.”
