Volvo has an upgrade coming next month for its On Call smart app that will allow customers add connectivity to the Apple Watch or Android Wear. The On Call revamp includes an iPad interface and a unified Windows Phone app with voice control through its Cortana intelligent-assistant system. Beyond permitting remote locking/unlocking, vehicle location and a variety of other Volvo services, this new version of On Call also brings enhanced "send-to-car" capabilities for the navigation system.

In addition to greater functionality, the On Call app also gets a new look that reflects its relationship to the automaker's latest Sensus driver interface introduced on the all-new 2015 Volvo XC90 crossover SUV. Introduced in 2001, Volvo's On Call telematics system is currently available in 21 global markets and standard equipment on all vehicles sold in the U.S., Canada and Brazil. The automaker says it has roughly 230,000 active subscribers.
