You Can Now Control Your Volvo Car with Apple Watch

1 1

Earlier this month, German car maker Volkswagen announced the launch of its all new Apple Watch app and today, Volvo has unveiled an updated version of its Volvo On Call smart app with Apple Watch support, which allows Volvo owners to control settings, lock/unlock, locate and utilise many other Volvo services straight from their wrist. The updated Volvo app also supports Google’s Android Wear as well as Windows Phone with voice control through Cortana.

“Volvo On Call is an app that allows you to literally take control over everyday elements in your Volvo. You can set heater timings for those cold and frosty mornings or cool down your car in hot weather, check your fuel level and mileage, or time to next service. It even helps you to locate your car in a crowded parking garage,” explains David Holecek, Director Connected Products and Services at Volvo Cars.

Volvo On Call is available in 21 markets across the world. It is currently standard in the US, Canada and Brazil while it is an option in all other markets where available. Sofia Wessman, Manager Volvo On Call at Volvo Cars, said that in the past few years, Volvo On Call has moved from a safety and security related in-car feature to a solution that allows the driver to stay connected with their car and provides many new benefits.

You can grab the app at the following App Store link:

    I hope Mazda is next. I am also hoping that the Apple Watch would replace the keyless FOB. That would be particularly nice! Get rid of your house keys, car keys, building access badges and wallets. Just iPhone and/or Apple Watch.

    Well with Homekit around the corner the keyless FOB thing might not be too far off!

    Hopefully you don’t lose your phone/watch and/or have enough battery when that day comes.

  • Like ShaBi said, what if you lose your watch? Key must be plan B.
