The more flexible voice recognition system makes it easier for subscribers to navigate services and features through its ability to understand voice commands in a natural manner. Users can simply say, "I need to make a phone call," instead of going through a prompt and using more formal language like, "dial" or "call."
Natural voice technology also allows subscribers to connect with the OnStar Virtual Advisor to access personalized weather and traffic updates by saying common phrases including, "get traffic info," or "what’s the weather today?" Through text-to-speech technology, subscribers will instantly receive their requested update from an OnStar Virtual Advisor.
