Hyundai updates Blue Link app with Android Wear support
Hyundai’s Blue Link app, which lets users control their cars from an Android Wear device, is now live in the Play Store. The Blue Link app gives users the ability to remotely start, lock and unlock their cars, and even find the parking location in a crowded parking lot. They’ve made navigation pretty simple, too. All of the features and controls can be accessed by using a couple of taps or voice commands directly from the Android Wear-powered device. Here are all of the features the Blue Link app provides:
- Remote Engine Start
- Remote Engine Stop (Only available when vehicle is in remote engine start mode)
- Remote Door Lock / Unlock
- Remote Flash Lights / Honk Horn
- Car Finder
- Call Roadside
- Call Blue Link
The app is compatible with all first and second generation Hyundai cars with Blue Link services installed, and unfortunately can’t be retrofit into cars without the technology built-in. We went hands-on with Hyundai’s Blue Link app at CES 2015, where we got to demo all of the features first-hand. If you’d like some more information on the Blue Link app, check out our hands-on video from CES 2015.
Anyone out there own a Hyundai car with Blue Link capabilities? If so, would this be reason enough to pick up an Android Wear device? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
