Hyundai adds Google Assistant to connected cars

Thursday 5 January 2017 | 14:01 CET | News
Hyundai announced at CES that its Blue Link connected car app is now compatible with Google Assistant, allowing vehicle owners to issue simple voice commands to start or lock their vehicle, set the temperature or find destinations. A sample voice command would be: "Ok Google, Tell Blue Link to start my Santa Fe and set the temperature to 72 degrees". The connected features can be accessed via Google Home and also include operating the horn and lights, starting and stopping charging of Hyundai plug-ins and transferring an address from the home to the car.
