Android Automotive includes a Google Assistant, but it’s still severely restricted. Now Google is announcing an update called “Remote Action”. It aims to further expand the functionality between Android Automotive and the Google Assistant.
Remote Actions – Android Automotive is getting more widespread
At the current CES 2022, Google announced a range of enhanced functions for Android Automotive and Google Assistant. This will make networking between your devices even better in the future. Volvo drivers will soon benefit from additional features related to Google Assistant through an update.
Previously it was only possible to ask Google Assistant questions about vehicle values directly in the vehicle. This should change now:
In the coming months you will be able to turn your car on and off, control the temperature and get information about your car on all assistive devices Starting with Volvo Cars
Google calls this innovation remote actions, This allows you to activate air conditioning or auxiliary heating from any device in your car. Along with this, values like battery level or tank filling can also be asked.
These remote actions should be transferred first to Volvo, later to vehicles from other manufacturers that also use the Android Automotive OS.
