MYBUICK SKILL FOR ALEXA FAQ


Who is Alexa?

Alexa is Amazon’s cloud-based voice service. You can ask Alexa to answer questions, play music, deliver the news, get weather and traffic reports, control features of your smart home and more.  The Alexa service is always getting smarter, both for features, and for natural-language understanding and accuracy. Because Alexa’s knowledge base is in the cloud, she continually learns and adds more functionality, every hour, every day.

What are Alexa skills and which ones can I use with my vehicle?

Skills are voice-driven Alexa capabilities built by third party developers. If you use an Alexa-enabled device, you can view available skills and enable or disable certain skills from alexa.amazon.com or the Amazon Alexa app. Once you have enabled a skill, you start using it by saying any of the commands listed below. Since Alexa is built in the cloud, she is always getting smarter. 

You’ll be using a special Alexa skill designed to work with Buick vehicles on Alexa-enabled devices. The key features in the vehicle skill include: remote start/stop engine and remote door lock/unlock. Additional features may be added over time.

What Alexa voice commands can I use?

“All commands begin with “Alexa, ask Buick…” Finish the command with one of the phrases below:
• “…to start my vehicle.”
• “…to stop my vehicle.”
• “…to lock my vehicle.”
• “…to unlock my vehicle.”
• “…for help.”
• “…what vehicles are in my garage.”

What vehicles can I use with the myBuick skill for Alexa?

Most 2011 or newer model year Buick vehicles support the myBuick skill for Alexa. If your vehicle supports remote functionality on the mobile app, it will support the myBuick skill for Alexa. A Buick active service plan is required.

How do I get help with the myBuick skill for Alexa or with my OnStar account?

You can get help by calling a Connection Center Team advisor at 877-426-1299.

AMAZON KEY FAQ


How does Amazon lock and unlock my vehicle during in-car delivery?

Amazon Key links your Amazon Prime account with your Owner Center account and connected vehicle service plan to enable in-car deliveries. Amazon will then be able to issue certain remote commands to your linked vehicle, including locating the vehicle, unlock, lock, and alert horn and flash lights. In addition, information about your vehicle, its location, and confirmation that remote vehicle commands were executed may be sent to Amazon during the delivery process.

What if the Amazon Key delivery driver can’t get to my vehicle?

If the delivery driver is not able to locate your vehicle, the driver will deliver to your selected backup option. This can be to the building of your delivery address or in-car delivery on the next delivery day. You can make this selection and set up a backup delivery preference within the Amazon Key App.

How do I know my vehicle is parked in an area where Amazon can deliver?

The Amazon Key App lets you check if you have parked within range of the delivery location and provides notifications with your expected 4-hour delivery time window (typically between 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. for Two-Day Shipping and 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. for Same-Day Delivery).

Is there an additional fee to receive in-car delivery?

No. In-car delivery is free for Amazon Prime members with eligible vehicles and an active connected vehicle service plan.
