Ford Vehicles Will Now Read You Text Messages While You Drive [Headlines]

IoT

In order to make driving safer in our age of constant mobile communication, the auto company is making it easier for you to drive and stay connected.

Ford is installing a feature in its new vehicles — and many of its older ones — that can read text messages out loud.

The feature, which is intended to reduce texting while driving, is part of Ford’s voice-activated technology, Sync, and is already installed on all model 2012 Ford vehicles with the exception of the Ranger. Using a Bluetooth connection, it syncs with phones and alerts users when they receive text messages, reads them out loud and allows users to respond with a selection of standard pre-written messages without taking their hands off the wheel.
