Alexa† is Amazon’s† cloud-based voice service. You can ask Alexa† to answer questions, play music, deliver the news, get weather and traffic reports, control features of your smart home and more. The Alexa† service is always getting smarter, both for features, and for enhanced-language understanding and accuracy. Because Alexa’s† knowledge base is in the cloud, she continually learns and adds more functionality, every hour, every day.
Skills are voice-driven Alexa† capabilities built by third-party developers. If you use an Alexa-enabled device†, you can view available skills and enable or disable certain skills from alexa.amazon.com or the Amazon Alexa app†. Once you have enabled a skill, you start using it by saying any of the commands listed below. Since Alexa is built into the cloud, she is always getting smarter.
With an enabled vehicle, all commands begin with “Alexa, ask Buick…” Finish the command with one of the phrases below:
• “…to start my vehicle.”
• “…to stop my vehicle.”
• “…to lock my vehicle.”
• “…to unlock my vehicle.”
• “…for help.”
• “…what vehicles are in my garage.”
Properly equipped Buick vehicles support the myBuick® skill for Alexa†. If your vehicle supports remote functionality on the mobile app, it will support the myBuick® skill for Alexa†. The available Buick Remote Access Plan† is required.
