VW's Car-Net mobile app now supports several Siri commands.

Volkswagen has updated its Car-Net mobile app to support several voice commands through Apple's Siri technology.

Owners can now use Siri to remotely lock or unlock their vehicle, check estimated remaining fuel range or battery charge, and trigger a headlight flash or flash and honk to help locate the vehicle in a large parking lot.

Additional options can be configured via personalized phrases that control charging stop/start, defroster, and cabin temperature settings.

The new features are supported on Apple devices with iOS 12.
