Jaguar Land Rover selected the Connected Car Expo to introduce their new app. The Land Rover JustDrive App aims to alleviate technical frustration encounters while driving by giving voice command control over certain apps.
Drivers should be, you know, focused on driving when behind the wheel, but Land Rover knows that is likely never going to be the case for everyone. For that reason, the JustDrive App allows people to do just that: Just drive. The app uses voice recognition software to enable drivers to control things like Spotify and the addictive Twitter without picking up a device. Overall, the JustDrive app has the potential to lower driving distractions, provided it functions smoothly. If it does not work exactly as promised, there could be irritated drivers reaching for their smartphones and taking their eyes off the roads. There are certainly ample voice recognition fail stories out there, making it important for Land Rover to get it right.
