Monday 16 April 2018 | 18:44 CET | News
Kia launched a voice commands-based UVO Skill service for Amazon Alexa dedicated to owners of a number of Kia car models. Using simple voice commands from the comfort of their home, end-users can now control a number of vehicle functions, such as start and stop the engine and heat or cool their cars, depending on model and model year. The system also allows owners to lock doors, sound the horn and flash the lights, and start and stop charging their plug-in or electric vehicle whenever they choose.
