Volvo XC90: Displays and voice control / Voice Control

Voice control1 allows you to control functions in the vehicle, e.g. the climate control system, radio or a Bluetooth-connected phone, using spoken commands. In vehicles equipped with Sensus Navigation*, the navigation system can also be controlled using voice commands.

What is voice control?

Voice control is a driver support function that can simplify the use of various commands in your vehicle. It works in general like a regular application in which you input information in a set order in order to perform a task, but instead of typing on a keypad, you use voice commands. It can therefore be a good idea to familiarize yourself with how, and in what order, a voice command should be spoken to get the desired result.

You can control certain infotainment and climate control functions through the voice control system by using voice commands. The system can respond verbally and by displaying information in the instrument panel.

WARNING

The driver is always responsible for ensuring that the vehicle is operated in a safe manner and that all applicable traffic regulations are followed.
