Apple and General Motors have been working together to find a way to integrate the Siri personal assistant from iPhones and iPads into their vehicles. They decided on a 12-month timeline, but Cadillac is already ahead of the game.
The voice-activated Cadillac CUE infotainment system is already similar to a Siri system, it was only missing the human aspect in the form of a female voice. The infotainment system can access your music, navigation, internet, texts and car information with just a voice command. Many people involved in production believe the faux human interaction is the appeal of the Siri system, so Cadillac has added a similar aspect to the CUE system.
The 2013 Cadillac XTS will be equipped with a Siri doppelganger of sorts, so that when you plug your iPhone in, the same automated voice will answer your voice commands. You can command her to play a certain songlist from Pandora, just as you could to your iPhone while you’re at home.
