Six New Chevy Models Get Support for Siri's Eyes Free Feature
Chevy seems to be giving car buyers even more options to access Apple’s digital assistant as the automaker recently announced that Siri Eyes Free support will be available in six more of its 2014 models. Citing a “remarkable” customer response to Siri Eyes Free, Chevy revealed that the hands-free iPhone operation feature would be built in to the company’s 2014 Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS, and Volt.
Siri integration will mean that customers with iPhones running iOS 6 or iOS 7 will be able to use those devices to make voice-activated, hands-free calls to their Contacts, play music from their iTunes libraries, send iMessages and add Calendar appointments.
For those of you who didn’t know, Chevy was the first automaker to integrate Siri Eyes Free into its vehicles, debuting the feature in its Spark and Sonic models in February of this year. Although Chevy was the first, eight other automakers initially signed on to integrate Siri compatibility into their vehicles in June of last year. Honda enabled Siri compatibility into its 2013 Accord and Acura models, making the Apple digital assistant a dealer-installed option for buyers. Other automakers building in compatibility with Siri include General Motors, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota and Chrysler.
