Voice Commands: The Magic Words for Your GMC Alexa
Once you’ve successfully played matchmaker between your GMC and Alexa, it’s time to learn the language of love—or, in this case, voice commands. You see, Alexa is a good listener but not a mind reader. You’ve got to say the magic words!
Here are some commands to get you started:
- “Alexa, start my GMC,” to fire up the engine.
- “Alexa, lock the doors of my GMC.” For those times, you’re halfway to the grocery store and need help remembering if you locked up.
- “Alexa, what’s my fuel level?” because nobody likes the low fuel light surprise.
Remember, it’s not just what you say but how you say it. Be clear and specific, and Alexa will be more than happy to assist you.
