Apple Voice Recognition Adopted by Nine Automakers

Apple Voice Recognition Adopted by Nine Automakers

Apple, the technology guru, is teaming up with major automotive manufacturers to bring its Siri voice-recognition personal assistant system to a long list of cars. 

The following companies are jumping on the frenzied Apple bandwagon: BMW, GM, Mercedes, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler and Honda. A specific button to activate Siri will be placed in these cars, and will enable the driver to activate and control the software with very little distraction from actually driving.

The system will work via bluetooth, and will not burden the cars computing system, only your phones. We have already seen a great deal of Apple integration in the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class, and now everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.

Ford was one of the first companies to team up with a tech giant with its SYNC system designed by Microsoft. Now however, it seems Apple has turned the tide and attracted the rest of the group.

    I will buy anything with an Apple on it. This will definitely influence my next car purchase. I love SIRI.
