Volvo and Microsoft have teamed up and are announcing a new voice control system for Volvo cars using the Microsoft Band 2.
Owners of Volvo cars will be able to use the Microsoft Band 2 to talk to their vehicles and this will allow them to control some of the functions on their cars.
Volvo owners will be able to talk to their car via their Microsoft Band 2, allowing them to instruct their vehicle to perform tasks including, setting the navigation, starting the heater, locking the doors, flashing the lights or sounding the horn via Volvo’s mobile app Volvo on Call and the connected wearable device.
Volvo is intent on making the car experience as easy and convenient as possible by utilising the latest technology in the most relevant and inspiring ways. With voice control we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of what is possible with digital assistant functionalities,” said Thomas Müller, Vice President Electrics/ Electronics & E-Propulsion at Volvo Car Group.
These new features will be available for Volvo cars in the Spring, you can find out more details over at Volvo at the link below.
