Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is going to offer nearly 2 million of its owners Siri Eyes Free upgrades.

Owners with certain 2013 and newer FCA vehicles fit with the 8.4-inch Uconnect system will be offered the upgrade, which can be downloaded online and installed in the vehicle by the owner. For those who don’t want to do it themselves, an appointment can be made for a dealer to perform the upgrade.

Siri Eyes Free allows drivers to access the Apple iPhone service through the push of a button on the steering wheel, allowing you to use voice commands to play music, send text messages, place phone calls, set reminders and access navigation.
