Volkswagen Lets Apple Users Unlock Their Cars With Siri Shortcuts

Volkswagen has announced an update to their Car-Net app which lets iPhone users connect to Siri to interact with their vehicles.

Arrived with the update of iOS 12, Volkswagen Car-Net now offers several shortcuts that can be added to Siri with a personalized phrase, including a start/stop for charging, defroster, and climate; a set climate temperature command, plus a “where is my car” command.

Once logged into the Volkswagen’s Car-Net App, owners can use Siri to lock and unlock their vehicle, check estimated mileage with the fuel or charge left in the vehicle, and enable the Flash or Honk & Flash commands. For example, an owner would simply say to their Apple devices including iWatch, “Hey Siri, lock my car”.


EVP, Global Chief Information Officer Volkswagen Brand & Car-IT, Abdallah Shanti commented,

We are constantly looking at innovative ways to make Volkswagen Car-Net more convenient and relevant for our customers. With Siri Shortcuts, creating voice commands to use with our mobile app was a great opportunity to do just that! Integration with Siri helps our drivers keep eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.


Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service, available on the following 2014 and newer models, including CC, EOS, Beetle/Convertible and Coupe, Jetta/SE with Connectivity, SEL, TDI, GLI, and Hybrid, Passat/SE, SEL Premium, including TDI and VR6, Tiguan/SE, SEL, R-Line and Limited; year 2015 and newer Golf/GTI/R/SportWagen and e-Golf models; Golf Alltrack, Atlas and Arteon.

With the new Siri integration, may the drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
