Hyundai and Google Connect Cars and Homes

| January 5, 2017

Cars and homes are going to become increasingly interconnected if Google and Hyundai have their way.

In an integration highlighting the increasing connection between cars and the home, Hyundai is demonstrating compatibility with the company’s Blue Link Agent for the Google Assistant.

The integration allows control of various functions of a Hyundai vehicle with simple voice commands, including such commands as:  “Ok Google, Tell Blue Link to start my Santa Fe and set the temperature to 72 degrees”, or “Ok Google, Tell Blue Link to send the address of the Mandarin Oriental, in Las Vegas to my Sonata”, and “Ok Google, ask Blue Link to lock my car.”

According to Manish Mehrotra, director, digital business planning and connected operations, Hyundai Motor America, “We will continue to add layers of convenience to the Blue Link connected car system and our cars, making features like remote EV charge management, remote locking, temperature and remote start easier than ever while sitting on the couch and saying ‘Ok Google’.”

Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant that can provide real-time answers, activate streaming music services, smart home devices, and now, cars.

Blue Link brings connectivity directly into Hyundai cars with technology like Remote Start with Climate Control, Destination Search powered by Google®, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Car Finder, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery.

What’s more, Blue Link services can be easily accessed from the buttons on the rear view mirror and center stack, the Web or via the Blue Link owners’ smartphone app.
