Siri "Eyes Free" mode will be coming to the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, Volt, Malibu, SS, Cruze and Equinox via the Chevrolet MyLink service, GM announced today. Earlier this year, the Chevy Spark and Sonic were the first cars to get Siri "Eyes Free" mode, and the car company cites its popularity with customers for its expansion across their car line.
"The response to Siri Eyes Free integration in Chevy Sonic and Spark from our customers has been remarkable," said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of U.S. Marketing. “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, so we're excited to expand this to even more customers."
In June, BMW announced Siri "Eyes Free" mode, which allows users to interact with their devices without looking at their phones, would be arriving in all of its cars from 2014 and beyond while Honda had announced the feature would be coming to several of its 2013 models earlier this year.
Apple has made an effort recently to get its technology in automobiles with Siri "Eyes Free" being announced last June and iOS in the Car, which allows iOS devices to be seamlessly integrated into cars' in-dash entertainment systems, being announced at this year's WWDC. At their third-quarter earnings call in July, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that having something in the automobile was "very important" for Apple.
