As many other premium manufacturers launch their first Apple Watch applications, Volvo is updating the one is already on the market. The Swedish manufacturer introduced a new version of its Volvo On Call app, making it compatible with Android Wear and Apple Watch. Volvo clients will be able to control settings, lock/unlock, locate and utilise many other Volvo services from their wrist.
It also has a large connectivity for devices like Apple Watch, a full iPad user interface, Android Wear and a unified Windows Phone app with voice control through Cortana, an intelligent assistant system, amongst others. Apart from adding new functionality, the Volvo On Call app has received a new design based on Sensus driver interface found in the new Volvo XC90. 
“Volvo On Call is an app that allows you to literally take control over everyday elements in your Volvo. You can set heater timings for those cold and frosty mornings or cool down your car in hot weather, check your fuel level and mileage, or time to next service. It even helps you to locate your car in a crowded parking garage,” explains David Holecek, Director Connected Products and Services at Volvo Cars.
The update, which will also see the addition of enhanced ‘send-to-car’ capabilities for navigation purposes, is due to be released end of June.
