Genesis Adds Google Home Compatability
Hyundai's Genesis Motor America subsidiary has enhanced its Genesis Connected Services with the introduction of a voice control app for the Google Assistant.
All Genesis vehicles are now equipped with three years of complimentary Genesis Connected Services, which allows connectivity into the car with technology like remote start, climate control, destination search powered by Google, remote door lock/unlock, and stolen vehicle recovery. The Genesis app for the Google Assistant allows users to control various functions with simple voice commands delivered via the Assistant on Google Home or via the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones or iPhones. Users can also send text commands via the Google Assistant on their smartphones.
To send commands to Genesis Vehicles via the Google Assistant on Google Home or smartphones, engineers developed a way to link customers' Genesis Connected Services Accounts with the Google Assistant voice activated services. Once customers linke their accounts, Remote Service commands can be sent to Genesis vehicles only after the Google Assistant prompts owners for their Connected Services Personal Identification Numbers (PINs).
