Do It from Your Car with Connected Services

Cutting-edge technologies make it more convenient than ever to stay connected while in your vehicle 

Your vehicle is more than just a means of getting from point A to point B. Connected technologies allow your vehicle to stand in as the family command center, mobile office and even remote classroom. Whether you’re trying to get more done while on the road or just trying to keep a little more distance in your daily routine, Connected Services* can provide the answer. In fact, you might not realize just how useful these features can be until you try them. Here are just a few ways Connected Services can help you “get life done” from inside your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle. 

Set up a mobile office or classroom 

Maybe you need to take a video conference call while working from home, but want some peace and quiet away from others in the house. Perhaps your child is doing virtual learning this semester and needs a stable internet connection. Or maybe your home Wi-Fi® is down due to storms or other technical problems, but you’ve still got work to do online. Whatever the reason, your passengers can stay connected thanks to your vehicle’s available Wi-Fi® Hotspot.* You can connect up to seven devices to the hotspot — so the whole family can email, stream, video call and more — and the signal reaches up to 50 feet away from your vehicle. 

Empower your day 

Even if you’re on the go, you can use your voice to help complete your day-to-day tasks, thanks to the convenience and power of available Alexa Built-In.* It’s integrated right into compatible vehicles, so you don’t need to plug in your phone. Simply ask Alexa to add an item to your shopping list, or control smart home devices* like your lights or garage door opener. You can also ask Alexa to play your favorite playlist from Amazon Music or Spotify, or for directions to a destination. With those and many other features, Alexa Built-In helps you get through the day just a little more easily. 

Stay informed 

Spending a lot of time in the car doesn’t mean you can’t stay up to date with what’s going on in the world. In-Vehicle Apps,* such as The New York Times* and The Washington Post,* allow you to listen to the latest headlines from around the country and around the world. You can also use the Audiobooks app to learn something new — or just unwind with a fun novel — behind the wheel.
