Yes, it works on my Galaxy S7. It did not work on my old LG Spectrum 2. FYI, you must be stopped in order to read any text messages, but you will see who they are from while moving and the car will can read them to you.Has anyone had luck viewing their text message inbox on the center console when connecting a phone via Bluetooth? Or does the phone need to be plugged into the USB port? Does Android/iPhone make a difference here?
Thanks, I'll try re-pairing the phone. I'm curious whether this is a feature that works with Android, but not iPhones.Feature is available 2014+
When pairing the phone, it should prompt you to allow the vehicle to have access to messages. You need to say yes.
If you didn't, you'll need to dig around in the bluetooth settings on your phone to enable sharing, or might be easier to delete pairing and re-add.
This. The Volt is so quiet, just drive it!I've found it better to have text message alerts not show up. Enjoy your drive. Don't worry about checking a text. Have the phone connected, but a text can wait.
I think it might only work with Android. I had an iPhone 6s paired with my 2014 and never once saw a text message. Didn't even know it had that feature. Switched to a Galaxy S7 last week and paired my phone, and suddenly started getting text messages! There was one extra question when pairing with the Galaxy, and that was the "access to messages". It was a pretty cool surprise: I like that the car will read the messages to you. My husband now likes to send me text message tongue twisters if he knows I am in the car, LOL.Thanks, I'll try re-pairing the phone.
