Apple's Siri kann in den USA nun zum Öffnen bestimmer Volkswagen-Modelle verwendet werden.
Volkswagen of America has juiced up the VW Car-Net mobile app with enhanced Apple Siri capabilities, the company announced.
Car-Net allows drivers to run mobile apps via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink, VW’s infotainment system. Now drivers who use Apple smartphones running iOS 12 can use voice commands to have Siri help control their VW-Net-connected cars.
For example, saying “Hey Siri, lock my car,” does just that. Siri can check the estimated remaining range for the car based on the fuel amount or battery charge level, and can turn on the car’s flashers.
Owners can also personalize Siri interactions. The interface allows preferred phrases for climate control, defrosting, start/stop for charging, and vehicle location, such as, “Hey Siri, where’s my ride?”
Volkswagen added the Siri voice command feature to Car-Net for both driver safety and convenience.
