Genesis will be Equipped with Remote Voice Command to Control Car


Amazon Alexa allows Genesis owners to send remote commands to their car from inside their home using simple voice interaction through Genesis Connected Services and an Alexa-enabled device.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — “Did I lock the car?” “How can I warm up my car on a snowy morning without going outside, get my news and still get to work on time?” These are questions that can leave many car owners feeling frazzled. But not G80 and G90 owners, as Genesis is the first automaker to launch an Alexa skill, allowing remote voice commands to control connected cars. Genesis Connected Services can take care of these tasks and more from inside the home using the Alexa voice service on Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Tap. The new Alexa skill for Genesis is available today across Alexa-enabled devices.

Additionally, Genesis G90 owners will receive a complimentary Gift Card redeemable towards an Amazon Echo.

How It Works   

Amazon Alexa allows customers to send remote commands to their car from inside their home using simple voice interaction through Genesis Connected Services and an Alexa-enabled device. To send commands to Genesis vehicles via Alexa, users must enable the Genesis skill in their Alexa app available on iOS, Android and Fire tablets, and then link their existing Genesis Connected Services Account within the Alexa app. Voice commands will only be sent to Genesis vehicles after Alexa prompts owners for their Genesis Connected Services Personal Identification Number (PIN).
