iPhone 4S Siri controls built-in music player in car

I’m pretty sure everyone knows that the most interesting thing about the iPhone 4S is of course the voice assistant Siri, mainly because that’s basically the only real difference of note between the latest iOS smartphone and the iPhone 4, and you all know how Siri works, but apparently the voice assistant can also work in the car and control your built-in music player.

The guys over at Auto Blog wanted to see if Siri on the iPhone 4S could work inside a vehicle when tethered over Bluetooth and found that actually Siri works pretty well in the car, and have produced a short video of the experiment, which we have for your viewing pleasure below.

The guys tested Siri in several cars including a Nissan Maxima, Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300 and two Mercedes-Benz, with the results being mixed and some commands going through with ease whilst others needed several attempts.

In the footage Siri is tested in the Maxima, which provided the best results, and you will see that when the user holds down the iPhone home button Siri is essentially treated as an incoming call and fades out the audio of your music player.

Anyway, rather than me attempt to explain how the Siri in car test went I’ll leave you to head on down and hit that play button to check out the Apple iPhone 4S’ Siri system working in the car, and of course if you do try out Siri in your own vehicle feel free to let us know how you get on by dropping us a line to our comments area below…enjoy.

    I have a Kia Rio with iPod cable attachment. This allows me to use my phone as my stereo through the internal speakers. I don’t use bluetooth at all. I often press the Home button and ask for a playlist or to send my husband or daughter a quick text message to say I’m on my way or something similar. I have to direct my voice towards the phone sat near the gear lever and it sometimes gets it wrong but its not too bad for short messages especially if I’m stuck in traffic.
