“OK Google, Call Mom.” How to Set up Voice Dialing

Post by InSaNeAuDiOSupport5 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:31 am

All Insane Audio head units now come with Google Assistant pre-installed! Google Assistant is super powerful and adds an amazing layer of voice control to your Insane Audio product. There are all kinds of things you can ask Assistant to do; from voice dialing, to creating reminders, to playing specific songs off Spotify, to controlling smart home connected products, ex: "OK Google, turn on the heater." Here’s a quick outline of the steps necessary to get voice dialing with Google Assistant set up on your Insane Audio unit. Keep scrolling for step-by-step instructions with screen shots.


Steps for getting voice dialing setup with Google Assistant

 Make sure your unit software is up to date.

 Connect your unit to the internet.

 Login to the Google Play Store with your Google Account (create an account if needed).

 Open and set up Google Assistant and “OK Google.”

 Pair your phone with your unit via Bluetooth and sync your contacts via the Bluetooth app.

 Open IA Dialer and import contacts.

 Optional: Download Google offline language pack.


Note: Some of these steps may be unnecessary for Android users. This is noted where applicable.


Make sure your unit software is up to date
If you don’t see Assistant in the apps list on your unit, make sure you’re running the latest software. Hint: the apps list is organized alphabetically. More details on updating your unit software here: viewforum.php?f=25


Connect to the Internet
Go to Apps > Settings > Wi-Fi. Select a Wi-Fi network or personal hotspot and enter the credentials to connect.


Login to the Google Play Store with your Google Account
To login to the Google Play Store, go to Apps > Play Store > SIGN IN. Enter your credentials and follow the prompts. Note: You may need to scroll down to see input fields and buttons. Note: Google may take several minutes to update Google apps before allowing you to sign in. Create a Google account if needed or if desired. Some folks choose to create a separate Google account for their vehicle. To create a Google account, go to Apps > Play Store > SIGN IN then scroll down and tap Create account.

Pair your phone with your unit via Bluetooth and sync your contacts via the Bluetooth app
First, open Bluetooth settings on your phone and find your unit under "Other Devices." Tap the name of your unit to pair it with your head unit. The PIN is 0000. Tap Allow on the dialogue that asks, “Allow Contacts and Favorites Sync?”

Next, open the Bluetooth app on your head unit by going to Apps > Bluetooth. Tap the person icon on the left, then tap the circular sync arrows icon on the right. Once the sync is complete, your contacts will appear in this list. Note: This step is not necessary if you have an Android phone and the Google account you signed into is synced with your contacts. Also, this step may take several minutes if you have a large number of contacts on your phone.

Open IA Dialer and import contacts
Now, open IA Dialer by going to Apps > IA Dialer. Tap the upper left menu icon and select Import Contacts. Select the Google account you would like to import the contacts to and then tap OK, then Yes. Note: This step is not necessary if you have an Android phone and the Google account you signed into is synced with your contacts. Also, this step may take several minutes if you have a large number of contacts on your phone.

Optional: Download Google offline language pack.
While voice dialing will not be as accurate if your device is not connected to the internet and all of Google's computing power, algorithms, AI, etc., you can still use voice dialing if your unit is offline. To improve offline voice dialing results, download the Google voice language pack. To download this language pack, go to Apps > Settings > Google > Voice > Languages > English.

Wow, so nice to hear that it allows users to use Googla Assistat to play specific songs from Spotify off with the all insane audio units.
Before meeting this page, I usually use Spotify Music Converter for Mac to download Spotify files to MP3 by unlocking some restirctions.
Now, I don't need to do that but directly listen to Spotify music offline via voice control.
Amazing! I can't wait for trying this feature.
