Voice control language settings

There are various language settings for the voice control system in your Volvo. This article describes the languages available and the language settings possible for these.

General information on languages and voice control

The voice control system has one language activated at a time, and this is the same language as the one shown in the car's display. If the system language set for the car is not supported by voice control, the voice control function is disabled.

The following system languages are supported: English (UK), English (US), Flemish, French, French (Canada), Italian, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch, Russian, Spanish, Spanish (Latin America), Norwegian, Japanese, Swedish and German.
