• Siri Eyes Free Support Coming to All BMWs Next Year

    Welcome to "standard," Siri.

    Apple's Siri in Eyes Free mode will be a standard feature on all 2014 BMWs, the luxury automaker confirmed this week.

    With the latest update to BMW iDrive, both Siri and Samsung SVoice can be accessed through the vehicle’s voice command controls.

    With a paired device, BMW says, pressing and holding the steering wheel voice command button will engage the device’s voice access. Pressing the steering wheel voice button without holding it will continue to access the vehicle’s voice command functions.

    "The BMW voice command system itself has been enhanced to now include visual voice command suggestions," the automaker's press release explains. "Once activated a banner across the top of the display offers prompts for when to speak and provides suggestions for what to say. The suggestions are tailored to the individual menu or function that the driver wishes to access."
