These days, tech-savvy consumers can use voice-activation software to control a multiplicity of features around the home, as provided by digital AI assistants like Amazon Alexa. However, what about accessing this same sort of convenience, but in your Cadillac? For that, users need to go through a few simple steps to get it all working properly, as outlined here.
Setting up Amazon Alexa in your Cadillac provides a bevy of benefits – for example, drivers can use the system to make phone calls, change the music or radio station, get directions, or open and close a garage door, all via simple voice commands.
To set up Amazon Alexa in a Cadillac vehicle, first create an Amazon account, or sign into an existing Amazon account. A Cadillac Connected Service plan is also required, with plans starting at $14.99 per month for access to Alexa-compatible features. From there, scroll through the Cadillac infotainment system to locate the Alexa app, or download it from the app store. Accept the terms of service to get started.
Next, users will need to link their Amazon account to their vehicle using a displayed QR or numeric code. Alexa must then be “woken up” using an on-screen button, or via a button located on the steering wheel. From there, the user will be able to use Amazon Alexa voice commands to access a variety of features.
A few other examples of the available in-vehicle Amazon Alexa features include locking and unlocking the doors, beeping the horn, starting or stopping the engine, and adjusting the headlights.
