GM to integrate Apple's Siri into Spark, Sonic

General Motors has said it will integrate Apple Inc.'s voice-activated software Siri in some of its cars next year to allow iPhone users to perform hands-free tasks, AFP has reported. The US carmaker made the announcement at the Los Angeles International Auto Show that it will use the Siri intelligent assistant in the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic LTZ and RS. "Through the cars' standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, customers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel," GM said. Drivers will be able to use the system to make hands-free calls, play songs in the iTunes library, or switch music sources from radio to iPod mode.
