What do you want to know about Google built in?

Model Year 2022 XC60, V90 Cross Country, XC40 Recharge and the new C40 Recharge.

Access to Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play, including data, is included in the Digital Services package for the first 4 years which comes standard on the following models - Model Year 2022 XC60, V90 Cross Country, XC40 Recharge and the new C40 Recharge.

No. All data is included for the first 4 years. After this period, the service can be extended as a subscription.

The Digital services subscription follows the car and if sold, the new owner can continue to use the services until the 4-year period has elapsed and can then prolong them through subscription. If you buy a new Volvo within the 4-year period, a Digital services subscription may be included for part of this period, however this depends on the model and the market you buy in.

Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play are included in the Digital services package. Together with the other connectivity services included it creates a convenient and connected mobility package.

You can still drive the car and use Google Assistant and Google Maps without a Google Account. However, if you’re offline or signed out, some apps and features may not be available. Google Play requires a logged in Google Account whereas Google Assistant and Google Maps will not be as personalised in the signed-out experience.

No. When you sign in with your existing Google Account, you can set up Google Assistant, download apps on Google Play and navigate to personal locations like “Home” and “Work” with Google Maps. If you don’t have a Google Account, you can create one on a separate device such as your phone or computer.

Every profile created has its own individual Google Account as well as other accounts - for example, Spotify. These accounts as well as other car settings are saved for the individual profile in question. Individual profiles can also be protected by using for example a PIN code or pattern if one driver doesn’t want any other drivers to access their personal account.

Just like on a smartphone, the apps will be updated when new versions become available as long as the car has a working network connection. If you choose to do so, apps can be set up to update themselves when the car is locked. By doing so, the new version is available next time you drive.

Volvo Cars does not share data it collects with Google. When you use Google apps and services in your Volvo, you can choose to share data/information with Google to make the services better for you. The information you share with Google depends on the settings you choose and whether or not you log into a Google Account. However, please note that data sharing will be a choice for you as a user. If you choose not to share data, your experience will be impacted and some services will not be available to you, as data sharing is required for certain features to work, such as location information for maps. Learn more about managing and changing your privacy settings for Google apps and services in your car here.
