Chevrolet MyLink in-car technology adds Siri integration

Chevrolet has added Siri integration to its in-car MyLink system, letting you while away the miles with some pleasant conversation

 

Chevrolet's in-car MyLink system can already pair with your smartphone for streaming audio or taking calls, but now the American car company has added Siri integration to its latest models.

There's limited functionality as you can't, for example, ask Apple's assistant anything that would require looking at the screen - for obvious reasons. But while it won't integrate with the navigation system, you can still use it to send texts, add calendar appointments or change the music.

Originally announced at the LA International Auto Show, Chevrolet has now revealed a Chevy Spark model over at CES with the new function built in. To access Siri, you hit the dedicated voice-command button built into the steering wheel and wait for Siri's usual ping.

Siri will feature in the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic models first before being added to more premium models like the Camaro.

"Safe, easy, reliable and portable connectivity is a top priority for our customers, and Siri complements MyLink’s existing capabilities to help deliver an incredible driving experience,” said Cristi Landy, marketing director for small cars at Chevrolet.

As much fun as Siri would be on a road trip, we're a little more excited about Toyota's self-driving Lexus set to debut at CES this evening. Still, Apple's invention is clearly not content with just cars if latest rumours about an Apple/Intel smart watch are to be believed. Is Siri on track for world domination? Watch this space...
