Alexa and Genesis G80 and G90 owners are now BFF’s. Hyundai has integrated Amazon’s Alexa with its connected services. They are the first automaker to allow for remote voice commands to control their line of Genesis cars.
#G80 and #G90 drivers will be able to utilize remote-control car functions from the office, home, wherever. Imagine before leaving for work in the morning telling your Alexa-enabled device to unlock your car or turn on the headlights. Pretty cool and convenient.
The Alexa feature built into Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap and Fire TV can be linked with the G80 and the G90. The system offers remote door locking/unlocking, remote engine starting with climate control, and remote horn/lights control. To send commands to autos via #Alexa, users will enable the Genesis skill in their Alexa app available on iOS, Android and Fire tablets, linking their existing connected-services account within the Alexa app.
U.S. General Manager of Genesis Erwin Raphael says the Amazon Alexa skill demonstrates the carmaker’s progressive commitment to technology that is intuitive and customer-focused. “It aligns with our belief that time and convenience are the ultimate luxuries,” he says. “From remotely locking your car from your living room to starting your G90 and setting the temperature from your bedroom, the Alexa skill for Genesis offers a new level of ease for owners.”
And some great news: Genesis G90 owners will receive a complimentary Amazon gift card that can be applied toward an Amazon Echo and vehicles are equipped with three years of complimentary connected-car services.
