Ford introduces voice-controlled iHeartRadio app at CES

Ford Motor Co. becomes the first auto manufacturer to integrate Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio SYNC AppLink in its vehicles via voice control. The app, available from iTunes and Blackberry App World and coming soon to the android market, is accessed using steering wheel-mounted controls or SYNC’s voice commands. That allows users to create custom stations, start and stop songs, search out stations and find traffic reports or news based on GPS location. For example, a driver could say “genre,” “city” or “personality” to search by type of music, location or host, or say “my stations” to access favorite channels—instead of turning a dial. The app also allows in-car users to share favorite playlists via Facebook Timeline. Ford SYNC AppLink, released at this week’s International CES show in Las Vegas, is available in 10 Ford 2012 vehicles. While iHeartRadio’s digital radio service now offers 800+ radio and digital-only stations from 150 cities, as well as user-created stations.
