GM bringing OnStar into the home

Techstination feature for Monday, August 1, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     GM is bringing OnStar into the home.   Last year the emergency assistance feature available in GM vehicles for a quarter of a century, was made available to all on mobile devices through OnStar Guardian.    Now it is bringing it into the home through integration with Amazon Alexa.      GM Director of OnStar Marketing Laura Thornton…

“Anywhere you are in your house within range of an Alexa device you could say..hey Alexa, I need help…and it will summon OnStar and OnStar services will kick in.   An OnStar advisor will come over the audio and be able to give you the help that you need.”

They are also bringing the app to motorcyclists.   OnStar Guard is priced at 14.99 a month…including crash response in any vehicle…and it can be shared with up to 7 friends or family members.  

You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
