MYBUICK® SKILL FOR ALEXA

YOUR BUICK HAS SKILLS

With the myBuick® skill for Alexa, you can use your voice to start or stop your engine and lock or unlock your doors using your Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled devices. You’ll need the available Remote Access Plan and a properly equipped vehicle to get started; commands are only available in English.

Go to alexa.amazon.com or the Amazon Alexa mobile app and log into your account.

2. SELECT THE MYBUICK® SKILL

Search for and select the myBuick® skill. Click or tap “Enable.”

3. LINK TO OWNER CENTRE

Link the skill to your Owner Centre account with your username and password.

Who is Alexa?

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.

What are Alexa skills?

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.

What Alexa voice commands can I use?

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.”

What vehicles can I use with the myBuick® skill for Alexa?

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.

How do I get help with the myBuick® skill for Alexa or with my Connected Services?

You can get help by calling a Connection Centre Team advisor at 1-877-426-1299.
