An interactive assistant computing system, referred to herein as “an interactive assistant,” “a virtual assistant,” “a computational assistant,” or simply an “assistant,” is described that stores information related to settings of a vehicle (e.g., seat locations, cabin temperature, mirror location, music preferences, directions to a destination, etc.) such that the assistant can automatically adjust one or more parameters of the vehicle in response to receiving an indication of an identity of an operator or passenger of the vehicle. The assistant in the vehicle may store settings for various users and prepare the vehicle once a second computing device sends the assistant an indication of a user’s identity. This way, the assistant can prepare the vehicle with settings preferred by the user, reducing the time between the user entering the vehicle and beginning to operate the vehicle by eliminating the need for the user to manually adjust each of the settings to the user’s preferred state.
