BMW Bringing Siri Eyes-Free Integration To Cars In 2014


With the latest update to BMW iDrive, both Apple Siri and Samsung SVoice can be accessed through the vehicle’s voice command controls. With a paired device, pressing and holding the steering wheel voice command button will engage the device’s voice access. Pressing the steering wheel voice button without holding it will continue to access the vehicle’s voice command functions.

Eyes-Free was first announced roughly a year ago, at last year’s WWDC. Today, BMW has said that they will start adding it to their cars next year … and I thought the television industry moves slowly.
