Ever thought of talking with your car? Probably not, because you were thinking it won`t listen. Well, you should reconsider. especially if you have a Volvo. Along with Microsoft, Volvo is going to present a technology that will blow your mind, this year at CES Las Vegas. 

Volvo and Microsoft are launching a wearable-enabled voice-control system. This way, Volvo owners will be able to talk to their car via their Microsoft Band 2, allowing them to instruct their vehicle to perform tasks including setting the navigation, 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.

The new possibility to connect to a Volvo with voice control through Microsoft Band 2 will be available for customers in Volvo on Call-enabled markets in spring 2016. And with Volvo on Call available in a very few markets: USA, Canada, China, Sweden, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Russia, Poland and Brazil.

“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.
