Kia Motors America presents the UVO Agent for the Google Assistant

Kia's UVO ecosystem continues to expand with the addition of UVO Agent for the Google Assistant.

With the UVO Agent, Kia owners can now send remote commands to their compatible vehicles in the comfort of their own homes with the Google Assistant on their smart speaker, like Google Home, or on their Android or iPhone.
This new feature gives Kia owners even more control over their ownership experience. Now owners can wake up in the morning and get their Kia heated or cooled to just the right temperature before they get ready to head out, enjoy peace of mind and avoid walking to their Kia cars to check if it's locked, and start or stop charging their plug-in hybrid or fully electric Kia at their convenience.
Just by saying "Hey Google, talk to UVO" you can ask the Assistant to help with the following remote commands - Remote Start/Stop Engine, Remote Climate Control, Remote Charge Start/Stop, Remote Horn and Lights, Remote Lock - to your compatible Kia.


The current models that support Google Assistant capability are: 

  • Niro Plug In Hybrid (MY2018+)
  • Soul EV (MY2017+)
  • Optima Plug-In Hybrid (MY2017+)
  • K900 (MY2016+)
