CES 2015: Hands On With Hyundai Blue Link Remote Voice Control Via Android Auto And Android Wear

January 7, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

This week at CES 2015, Hyundai showed off their next generation Blue Link technology with the voice controlled remote feature, allowing you to control various things in compatible Hyundai vehicles all with the sound of your voice via your Android Wear smartwatch. Technology really has come a long way, giving us the stuff of movies to play with in real life. Think James Bond controlling his car through his watch. Hyundai is going to debut this feature on the 2016 Elantra GT and Veloster models, so it will be a tad bit limited at the start but if it takes off expect it to hit more vehicles as time goes on and likely become more standard. Through the Blue Link tech built into the upcoming 2016 vehicles, and after one installs the companion app to their Android Wear device of choice, consumers can then execute voice commands for things like locking and unlocking their car doors, remote starting the engine, and even finding their car if they’ve lost it in the madness that parking structures sometimes become. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a pretty compelling and cool feature. We can’t wait to see this hit the streets! Check out our images from CES below! We also got some shots of the Hyundai powered by Android Auto which are also below.
