BMW’s ConnectedDrive technology is now taking one more step to keep drivers and pedestrians safe while out on the road. The ConnectedDrive text-to-speech capability allows drivers to focus on driving and not their phones by vocalizing information that could formerly only be read.
The text-to-speech application will read the statuses and news updates from the social network of your choice out loud. The system can also read the latest news from your RSS feeds – from sports to news to stocks. All of this is done through the car’s audio system.
BMW has included 14 different languages in the text-to-speech application making it available for a majority of their customers. All you need to start is a Smartphone and a BMW – just hook up and enjoy!
