Additionally, Honda has also introduced four new functionalities on the Honda Connect platform – Valet Alert, Fuel Log Analysis, Cost of Maintenance Analysis and Enhanced options for Service Products – bringing the total up to 36 connected features. The Honda Action on Google feature essentially allows for 10 voice-enabled features that can be performed via Google Assistant-enabled devices like Google Nest Speakers, Android phones, etc., or even Google’s text-based command functionality. It is also supported by iOS devices.
You can simply say “Ok Google” to perform functions such as switching the AC on/off, setting temperature, lock/unlock doors, find your car, open the boot remotely, get tyre inflation status, check battery and fuel status, and much more.
Honda is currently gearing up for the launch of the mid-cycle facelift of the Amaze sedan on August 17, 2021.

This new SUV will take on the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Tata Harrier when launched.
