Hyundai Motor has unveiled a new version of Bluelink®, a redesigned version of its state-of-the-art connected car services app. The latest version of Bluelink® offers clearer graphics, a fresh user interface and several new features to enhance Hyundai customers’ experience.
Earlier this year, Hyundai won a 2021 iF Design Award for Bluelink® in the “Communication Design” category. Now, the company is launching an updated Bluelink® app, which arrives with a completely new look and feel, underlined by a new logo and user-friendly icons. In addition, the new design theme for the user interface matches that of IONIQ 5’s infotainment system. Bluelink® now also delivers improved functionality, ensuring Hyundai customers can enjoy a seamless experience while driving or charging their car.
This enhancement represents a significant update to our state-of-the-art Bluelink® connected car services technology since it first launched in Europe in 2019 and offers a better user experience than ever before. This latest enhancement follows hot on the heels from the recent iF Design Awards we won for Bluelink®. This shows that Hyundai models are frequently recognised for their segment-leading connectivity and safety technology, and we’re proud that we continue to stay ahead of the curve.
The Bluelink® app is now equipped with a revamped and fully customisable home screen, which displays its main features, as well as an image of the Hyundai customer’s paired vehicle. Bluelink® users can now quickly access frequently used functions, such as remote features, vehicle status and the weather all on the same page.
For Hyundai BEV owners, the enhanced Bluelink® app offers a new EV Energy Usage feature. This allows users to track the power consumption, mileage, driving distance and regenerative braking production of their car.
Another new feature is the new Vehicle Control widget, which allows users to remotely lock their Hyundai car, or activate the climate control feature directly from their smartphone’s screen. Hyundai BEV owners who charge their vehicle with a home wall box can also use Bluelink® to remotely schedule charges for their Hyundai vehicle. This enables them to take advantage of off-peak electricity prices by charging only at night, for example.
For even more convenience, biometric identification is now available. This allows users to log-in via facial recognition or their fingerprint. Meanwhile, users can now access multiple Hyundai services following a one-time registration and single log-in via their Hyundai account. These include Bluelink® and the Charge myHyundai digital charging solution.
Bluelink® continues to offer the most successful features from the award-winning application’s first iterations, serving as an ideal digital companion for remote services. This includes the Find My Car function, which displays the location of the user’s vehicle on the map within the smartphone app, enabling them to locate their car remotely. Other remote service features include alarm messages, which alert users via the app if they forget to lock their car.
Meanwhile, the User Profile feature allows drivers to install up to two main accounts and one guest account, and upload a profile picture via the Bluelink® app. The User Profile stores users’ infotainment preferences, such as language, Bluetooth and navigation settings, in the Cloud. This allows drivers to easily transfer their preferred settings between different Hyundai cars for even more convenience.
The enhanced app (name: Hyundai Bluelink® Europe) is now available as a free download for Hyundai customers from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
