Siri Eyes Free
An extension of Apple's Siri functionality for enabling voice control of an iOS mobile device that is linked with a car's in-dash audio system. With Siri Eyes Free, drivers can speak natural language voice commands in order to operate the mobile device as well as the car's sound or in-vehicle infotainment system.
Siri Eyes Free operates via a voice command button on the car's steering wheel, enabling the driver to make and receive calls, select and play music, audibly send and receive text messages, access Maps and get directions, audibly receive notifications, set reminders and more.
Siri Eyes Free was first announced in 2012 and is now available on a variety of new model cars from automobile manufacturers like Chevrolet and BMW. Siri Eyes Free also plays a key role in the Apple CarPlay system (formerly "iOS in the Car") that debuted in early 2014.
