Alexa and Cortana are available on Android devices. If you have Amazon Prime especially, Echo devices with Alexa really integrate well, even if you use Google as your primary assistant on phone.So us Android users with Google Home are left out in the cold, so to speak. That's not right! 8^(
Could you go into a little more detail about this? What exactly did you do that triggered that email? Are you actually able to do anything via Alexa?During the recent flurry of Voltstats authentications I got the email "Congratulations on connecting the myChevrolet Alexa Skill to your GM Account ending in ...". I didn't ask for it but I guess I got it.
So somebody is working on it. Savvy? We shall see.
Nice! I had not noticed that - much easier and faster than doing it from the iPhone app. Thanks!Sorry if these seems like a plug for Apple, this is intended to promote the MyChevrolet App. Don't overlook the fact that the MyChevrolet App on the iPhone works with the Apple Watch. You can use the five remote features (lock, unlock, precondition, cancel precondition and sound the horn/ flash the lights using the Apple Watch.
You need to be within Bluetooth range for the Apple Watch to communicate with the iPhone but someday that may change as the Apple Watch is available with optional LTE service. You can also use the Apple Watch version of the MyChevrolet App to locate your vehicle and if you use Apple Maps you get turn by turn directions with haptic notification on the Apple Watch.
Would be a good idea. Just telling the car to pre-heat would be cool (though I never need to do that).
EDIT: Thinking about using Alexa to interface with the Volt got me thinking about what I might want to do. The only thing I could come up with is charging and pre-heating, and the latter I never do. But that got me thinking about using Alexa for temperature, and I thought it would be neat if you could use Alexa to control the thermostat. Worked like a charm.
