“Hey Toyota”: Toyota Announces New Infotainment System with Advanced Voice Commands

“Hey Toyota”: Toyota Announces New Infotainment System with Advanced Voice Commands

Soon, you’ll be able to chat with your Toyota using the “Hey Toyota” voice command. Just saying those two words will put you in communication with your vehicle, and you can then quickly and easily voice control a host of functions.

 

Advanced voice commands

For example, you can tell the vehicle that you’re feeling cold, you want to activate the windshield wipers or you’re looking for a Greek restaurant. The vehicle will understand you and help you!

 

This technology will be quite advanced. There will be two microphones; one for the driver and one for the passenger. So, if it’s the passenger who says “Hey, Toyota, I'm cold,” then the system will adjust the climate control only on the passenger side.

 

A larger, more user-friendly display screen

This new system will be integrated into a larger display screen. The all new 2022 Toyota Tundra will be offered with a 14-inch display screen.

Increasing display screen size will notably offer better graphics, but also facilitate interaction with technology with larger controls. In addition, the screen will be covered with a unique glass similar to that of a mobile device to reduce glare and better protect the interface.

 

Your cell phone is the key

Other features include a new smart key that will actually be your mobile device. You will therefore be able to open the doors with your cell phone and control the various accesses with your phone. The all-electric Toyota bZ4x will offer this function, as will all other Toyota vehicles in the near future.

 

The device will also offer cloud navigation. This will provide a navigation experience similar to your phone with more accurate points of interest and up-to-date data for construction and congestion. What’s more, this system can even display Google Reviews.

Also noteworthy is the faster, wireless charging that will be integrated into the system, along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

 

The system will first be offered in the Toyota Tundra 2022, but it will also be offered on all new Toyota models in the near future.
