Hyundai makes being lazier that much easier.  Very soon you’ll be able to control your Hyundai vehicle remotely using Google Assistant.

Whether you use an assistant-enabled smart speaker, Smart Display, Android or iOS phone, Hyundai’s got you covered. You can do things such as start your car from any room in your house, warm up the inside of the car while lounging on the couch or even make sure your doors are locked when you’re at the theater.

Command Performance

While you could command your Hyundai car to do tasks previously, it was a more involved process. Instead of doing as you asked immediately, the interface engaged you in a dialogue to get the job done. Nobody wants dialogue or backtalk, especially when you’re the boss giving the orders, regardless of if it’s a person or a car.

In the coming months Hyundai cars will be politer and more efficient. With the integration of Google Assistant, owners can streamline the conversation. For example, Hey Google, start my car,” “Hey Google, how much gas does my car have?” or “Hey Google, are my car doors locked?” Previously, a command required this phrasing: “Hey Google, tell Blue Link to start my Santa Fe.” By removing the “Ask Blue Link” section, you don’t need as much breath either.

Blue Link To Integrate With Google “Routines”

Additionally, Hyundai owners can integrate Blue Link remote command with Google Assistant, for example, in a morning or evening routine. A routine is a set of actions that Google Assistant will implement with just the phrase “Good morning” or “Good Evening.” It can be a ready-made routine or one that you can set up your own. These routines can include everything from getting the weather, turning on your coffee pot or turning off the lights, locking the door and making sure the garage is closed.
