Genesis owners can now use the new Genesis app for the Google Assistant to remote start, lock or send a destination to their car via voice commands on Google Home, eligible Android phones or iPhones.
Genesis Connected Services is getting a lot more powerful with the introduction of the Genesis app for the Google Assistant today. All Genesis vehicles are equipped with three years of complimentary Genesis Connected Services, which allows connectivity into the car with technology like Remote Start with Climate Control, Destination Search powered by Google®, Remote Door Lock/Unlock and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. The Genesis app for the Google Assistant allows control of various functions of a Genesis vehicle with simple voice commands or smartphone keyboard inputs.
What It Does
This new integration provides owners with the flexibility of sending common remote commands to their Genesis vehicle three different ways:
-Voice commands via the Assistant on Google Home -Voice commands via the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones or iPhones -Text commands via the Google Assistant on a smartphone
Owners have the ability to send the following commonly used Genesis Connected Services commands to their vehicle via the Google Assistant:
-Sending a destination to the car’s navigation system -Remote Start with Climate Control -Remote Lock & Unlock -Remote horn/lights
How It Works
To send commands to Genesis Vehicles via the Google Assistant on Google Home or a smartphone, engineers developed a way to link a customer’s Genesis Connected Services Account with the Google Assistant voice activated services. Once a customer has successfully linked his or her account, Remote Service commands can be sent to Genesis vehicles only after the Google Assistant prompts owners for their Connected Services Personal Identification Number (PIN).
