Ford offer voice-activated Siri for five million cars

Ford car owners will soon be able to access Siri through their Apple iPhones, the car manufacturer announced today.

The move by the carmaker means that up to five million Ford drivers can activate the voice-activated support system via a hardware button – most likely the steering wheel – allowing them to issue voice commands.

Siri – which stands for Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface – works as an ‘intelligent personal assistant’ and ‘knowledge navigator’ that can answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions requested by the speaker.

With a connected iPhone in the car, it can assist the user with making and receiving phone calls, sending text messages, playing music, getting directions and more. The good news is that Ford has confirmed that will not just be for a service that is available for new cars.

Instead, owners of Ford card from 2011 onwards that are equipped with MyFord Touch (also known as SYNC) will be able to download the Siri Eyes-Free ‘update’ from the car manufacturer’s website.

Users will need to install it on a USB drive and then plug it into the USB port in their vehicles. MyFord then walks the user through the installation which is understood to take around 20 minutes.

Siri was first introduced by Apple in 2011 as a feature on the iPhone 4S and has received several updates by the technology giant over the years.
