  • Speak the command naturally, not too fast, not too slow. Use direct commands without a lot of extra words.
  • Usually Phone and Audio commands can be spoken in a single command.

    For example, “Call David Smith at work,” “Play” followed by the artist or song name, or “Tune” followed by the radio station number.

There is no need to memorize specific command words. Direct commands might be more clearly understood by the system. An example of a direct command would be “Call 555-1212.” Examples of these direct commands are displayed on most of the screens while a voice session is active.

If the phone number has been saved with a name and a place, the direct command should include both, for example “Call David Smith at work.”
