Australian MG4 full list of Voice Commands: radio, volume, aircon, music, sat nav and more

Many Australians who purchase the MG4 Essence 64, Long Range 77 or XPower might not realise that the car supports built-in voice control with a huge list of possible commands, completely independent of whether you use Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

I found out how to enable Voice Commands and the full list of commands which are detailed below.

The voice commands are not available for Australian MG4 Excite 51 and Excite 64.

To enable the Voice Control function the MG4 driver has to agree to the EULA to enable iSmart and enable the slider for Voice in the Privacy Notice on the infotainment screen. I also suggest you enable the slider for Map (built-in Sat Nav) and Online Music.

There is a full list of commands below which I found out about while testing an MG4 Essence 64 media loan car last week, it’s worth saving this list on your phone or printing a copy to put in your glovebox.

Once you’ve done that Voice commands for your MG4 can be initiated by either of 2 methods:

  1. Speak: Hi MG <then one of the commands below>
  2. Press the Voice Assist button on the steering wheel and <then one of the below commands>

Reader Richard Hodgson sent in this tip:

“Not being able to access voice control in certain Drive modes was due to my pressing the Voice button for too long. A quick press gets the MG voice. A marginally longer press tells the MG that you want to access either Android Auto or Apple Carplay voice”.

“In my case my smart phone wasn’t connected so when I mistakenly longer-pressed the Voice button nothing happened. So remember, to get the MG voice control a very short quick press of the Voice button is required.”
