Voice commands offer additional convenience and assist the driver to not be distracted so that he or she can concentrate on driving, the road and the traffic situation.
Voice control is done in dialogue form with the user saying commands and receiving verbal responses from the system. The voice recognition system uses the same microphone as Bluetooth-connected devices, and the voice recognition system's responses are given via the car's speakers. In some cases, a text message is also shown in the driver display. Functions are controlled from the right-hand steering wheel keypad. Settings are made via the centre display.
The voice recognition system is continuously improved. Download updates for optimal performance from support.volvocars.com.
