Using The MBUX Voice Assistant Effectively

Notes on optimum use of MBUX voice assistant

  • The MBUX voice assistant is operational half a minute after switching on the vehicle and can be operated from all seats, depending on the equipment installed. The system recognizes from which seat the command was spoken and performs actions according to the seat position.
  • R When a dialog is ended, the MBUX voice assistant continues to be active for as long as the wave is displayed in the multimedia system. You can say another voice command without saying Hey Mercedes.
  • Using the direct command Change language to English, the system language can be changed to English without Hey Mercedes. Direct commands must be activated for this.
  • If a user profile has been stored and is active, the MBUX voice assistant can make suggestions based on the habits of the user. If the voice commands are not clear, the system selects an action. The action can be corrected with a new voice command.
    Say, Hey Mercedes, load my personal profile, to activate the profile. The user’s voice must first be learned by the system and assigned to a profile.
