How do I know if my vehicle has voice recognition capabilities?

Please refer to your Toyota Owner's Manual to determine if your vehicle supports voice recognition. Voice recognition can be used by pressing the Push-To-Talk button on your vehicle's steering wheel. Advanced voice recognition is available on select model year 2014 and later Toyota vehicles with Entune Premium Audio or Entune Premium JBL® Audio, and can be used to operate most features within Entune® App Suite.

Does the voice recognition system on Entune audio systems recognize different languages?

Entune Audio, Entune Audio Plus systems and Entune Premium systems available on select model year 2014 and later vehicles can recognize English, Spanish and French once the language is changed in the system's setting. For drivers with accents in their speech, the Entune Audio, Entune Audio Plus systems and Entune Premium systems can now recognize different tonality, inflection points and accents. You can learn more through the use of the voice recognition training feature within the head unit. For other Toyota multimedia systems, please refer to your Toyota Owner's Manual to determine languages recognized by your system.

How do I know which commands to use to control a feature?

Advanced voice recognition can recognize a large variety of commands, and you can speak in a free-form sentence and still be understood. There is also a Hint Screen on your vehicle multimedia system that displays sample commands that can be spoken, depending on the feature that you are trying to operate.

How do I use the Push-To-Talk button on the steering wheel?

The Push-To-Talk (PTT) button on your steering wheel allows you to activate available voice recognition commands for your multimedia system. All you have to do is press the button and then give your voice command. For more information on how to use voice recognition and available voice commands, please refer to your Toyota Owner's Manual.
