Last year, General Motors released an instructional video on how to use the Google built-in feature in properly equipped Chevy vehicles. Now, The General has released another helpful video for Cadillac owners looking for help in navigating their Google built-in infotainment system.
The first step to accessing features like Google Voice Assistant and Google Navigation in a properly-equipped Caddy is signing up for a Google account, or logging into an existing one. For the former option, the customer can select the blue OnStar button underneath the rear-view mirror, or sign in on Cadillac’s webpage to browse available subscription plans. Once logged in, the customer will then have access to real-time data, downloadable apps, regular updates, and much more.
One of the many highlights of the Google built-in feature is Google Voice Assistant, which allows for a hands-free infotainment experience. To enable this feature, all the user has to do is press the voice activation button on their multi-function steering wheel and say “Hey Google,” followed by a clear command.
An example of a commonly used Google Voice Assistant command could be “Hey Google, take me home,” which would then prompt the system to begin navigating toward the user’s home address, so long as they’ve already set their address in the navigation app.
Another notable feature is Google Navigation, which operates similarly to the Google Maps app and provides up-to-date route info, gas and EV charge station location data, among more.
For context, General Motors began integrating the Google built-in ecosystem into certain vehicles back 2021 with the GMC Hummer EV. Of course, there are certainly numerous capabilities and functions of Google built-in, so be sure to check out the video above for further information on how to take advantage the feature.
