Slacker Radio hits select Toyota and Lexus models with voice control

Toyota's Entune and Lexus' Enform infotainment systems already have access to several music streaming services like Pandora and iheartradio. But if Slacker remains your internet radio of choice and you drive a 2011 to 2015 model from either automaker, look out for software updates, because the app is coming to select vehicles from within that timeframe. Even better: since both these systems have voice recognition tech, this new app will have voice-enabled song and station search, as well. Plus, it will let you create personal stations, browse other people's, and play music that matches your mood.

Slacker comes bundled with the latest version of Lexus Enform's App Suite that's already available for download. It'll also be included in an Entune App Suite refresh for Toyota, which the company says is coming soon -- all you have to do is install these updates to get instant access to the service. We doubt you've been driving in creepy, lonely silence before this (unless that's your thing), but hey, it's nice to have more options.
