Okay Google start my Hyundai from Google Home before I connect to Androd Auto

Hyundai is continuing its relationship with Google after offering many models with Android Auto.  Hyundai will intergrate Googe Home voice commands with Blue Link like it did with Amazon Alexa. Google Home allows control of various functions of a Hyundai vehicle with simple voice commands.

Blue Link Action on Google Home demonstration features include:

Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant that can provide real-time answers, activate
music services, smart home devices, and now, cars.

Blue Link brings seamless connectivity directly into Hyundai cars with technology like Remote Start with Climate Control, Destination Search powered by Google®, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Car Finder, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. Blue Link services can be easily accessed from the buttons on the rearview mirror and center stack, the Web or via the Blue Link owners’ smartphone app. In addition to the Action on Google Assistant, some of these features can also be controlled via the latest Android Wear and Apple Watch smartwatch offerings.


How It Works

To send commands to the Hyundai Vehicles via the Google Assistant on Google Home, engineers developed a way to link a customer’s Blue Link Account with the Google Assistant voice activated services. Once a customer has successfully linked his or her account, Remote Service commands will only be sent to Hyundai vehicles after the Google Assistant prompts owners for their Blue Link Personal Identification Number (PIN).
