Search for a hotel while you drive: Ford adds Hotels.com to its voice-operated dashboard
On about one million vehicles worldwide, US automaker Ford has installed software called AppLink, which lets drivers link their smartphones to their car’s voice-control system and operate their apps with it.
The purpose of AppLink is to enable drivers to access their apps without being distracted by operating their smartphone while driving.
To date, the system has worked with only a handful of apps.
But late last week the carmaker added Hotels.com’s app to the catalog.
