Volvo XC90: Displays and voice control / Voice control for cellular phones

(Certain markets only.)

Call a contact in the phone book, have a text message read aloud or dictate short messages using voice commands to a Bluetoothconnected phone.

To access a contact in the phone book, the voice command must contain the contact information entered in the phone book. If a contact, e.g. Robyn Smith, has several phone numbers listed in the phone book, a number category such as home or cellular can also be specified, i.e. "Call Robyn Smith cellular".

Tap Volvo XC90. Voice control for cellular phones and say one of the following commands:

  • "Call [contact]" - call the selected contact from the phone book.
  • "Call [phone number]" - call a phone number.
  • "Recent calls" - display the list of recent calls.
  • "Read message" - read a text message aloud. If there are several messages, select the message to read aloud.
  • "Message to [contact]" – the user is prompted to dictate a short message. The message will then be read aloud and the user can choose to send or re-dictate the message. The vehicle must be connected to the Internet to access this function.
