From the moment the driver turns on their vehicle, smart suggestions orchestrated by the Assistant provide users with one touch actions based on the current context. On the way to a meeting? Share your ETA with the organizer in one tap. When it's time to fill up or do maintenance, taking care of your vehicle is a breeze with the help of the Assistant.
Beyond assisting drivers via voice, the Assistant will show app- and context-based suggestions on screen throughout the infotainment system. The content drivers need is just one tap away. I iterated on the contextual suggestion concepts in various apps to reach a final UI with Volvo.
The Immersive Conversation framework provides more contextual information and controls relevant to a user's intent during a conversation with the Assistant. With this enhancement, drivers can complete any flow via voice or simplified on-screen controls. Enlarged on screen options and reduced text density help limit eye time off the road.

We tested functional prototypes at the Google automotive research lab to gather feedback, refine, and ensure compliance with driver distraction/safety guidelines.
Coming soon to more models from Volvo, GM, Nissan and others.
