Volvo partners with Microsoft for voice control tech

The initiative will enable drivers in Volvo on Call-enabled markets to undertake tasks including setting the sat nav, 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 and e-propulsion at Volvo Car Group.
