Ten years ago, Ford and Microsoft debuted Sync, an entertainment system in cars that would let you connect your phone to the system via Bluetooth and have a readable electronic display. You're probably pretty familiar with this, since pretty much all new cars have a similar system, and it works well. But one of the biggest things Ford was excited to announce was their advancement in voice recognition technology.
They bragged that you could play songs entirely via voice control. After your MP3 player was indexed, you could say "Play Avril Lavigne" or request a specific song by saying "Play track 'My Humps.'" As you may have guessed, this didn't quite work out.
Voice recognition is still a part of many cars, but it's far from the revolutionary device they made it out to be. Really, try to play a specific song in your car. You'll end up crashing into a tree with rage before you ever get your Rage Against the Machine song to play. Even today, we can hardly get Siri or Alexa to play an artist without repeating it ten times and holding back your anger toward the faceless robot. Voice recognition technology is getting better, but just barely and just in the last few years. In 2007, nobody was having a good time talking to their car, and now, the voice prompts in cars are seldom used.
