Hi Everyone,

I have a 2018 XC90 T8 Inscription. According to the owner's manual, I am supposed to be able to use voice control to play a specific song or artist. http://volvo.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9512/~/voice-commands

I think I am missing something. Do I need to be in a specific music app for this to work? I've tried it when I have spotify open through the vehicle or through android auto, but this doesn't work. I feel like I'm missing something very obvious, like I have to have loaded the music into the car or have it on a USB drive or something?

Thanks for any guidance.

Amy

I am able to use the Sensus voice control to play a certain artist. I've only tried it when listening from USB storage. Just say "play <artist name>"

I can’t get it to do anything.
Not even the Aircon.
Unless I’m speaking in a different language, it doesn’t understand me

:D don't go there... if there is a piece of SW in the xc90 that is an abysmal piece of animal waste is the voice control. If my family wants to have a fit of laughs we just try the voice command and see which WRONG action it takes when something is asked.
As a MY16 buyer I was expecting some "new car" issues, especially in the SW, but the voice steering is really really bad (and since I am venting: I cannot explain why Volvo never fixed the scrolling list in the music player, where the current song scrolls down and disappears from view)... oh well, stop complaining.

Have you run the voice control update? It's a sticky at the top of the forum. I did and it controls everything fine.
