Google Assistant to Become the Connectivity Standard in Future Volvos

Using the internet to access everything from music to shopping to directions has become an everyday occurrence in most people's lives. Having connective technology in your vehicle is now a must. That's why Volvo recently teamed with Google to include Google Assistant in its future vehicles. Google Assistant will be part of the Sensus Connect infotainment system, providing drivers and passengers with greater connectivity than ever before.

Sensus Connect became a standard feature in all Volvos beginning with the 2015 model year, so the staff at our dealership is assuming that Google Assistant will also be standard in all Volvos once it is incorporated into the next generation of Sensus Connect. The manufacturer has not yet announced a date for incorporating Google Assistant into its vehicles, only saying that Google Assistant will be launched "in a couple of years."

What Will Google Assistant Allow Drivers To Do?

What Google Assistant will allow drivers to do is use Sensus Connect independently from their smartphones. In the current version, drivers had to connect to their smartphones through either Apple CarPlay or Google Android. Even though Google Android is from the same company, it's not an operating system like Google Assistant will be. Drivers will be able to access the system through voice commands.

Executives at Volvo believe the new system will accelerate innovation in connectivity. Google Maps and the Google Play Store will be embedded within Assistant. Drivers will be better able to access and operate all of the functions currently available with Sensus Connect such as the Volvo OnCall mobile app, Connected Service Booking and much more.

Doesn't this sound like a great addition to your next Volvo? We're excited about the possibilities that Google Assistant will bring to our customers.
