What is Intelligent Personal Assistant?

Communicate with your vehicle in a natural way using the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. It knows you, gets better every day and helps out whatever the situation. You also can assign your own personal activation word. It can explain everything about your vehicle, enable vehicle functions and helps you to get to know your BMW even better.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • natural voice interaction with the vehicle, either through the activation word „Hey BMW“ or with an individual activation word. No need to activate through the push-to-talk button on the steering wheel.
  • The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant enables various vehicle functions (e.g. Climate control, Lights, Media) and settings (e.g. Experience Modes, Caring Car)
  • The assistant knows the vehicle and can provide information (user manual, check control messages, driving history, vehicle status)
  • It simplifies the destination input of the navigation (e.g. search for restaurants) and entertainment (e.g. music search)

May only be available with additional optional equipment. Availability of BMW ConnectedDrive Services are dependent on vehicle specification, optional equipment and production date. Please ask your local BMW Retailer for more information if required.
