Voice Activated Text Messaging Approved in California

Voice Activated Text Messaging Approved in California

California was among one of the first states to create laws against talking on cell phones while driving…and in January 1, 2013 it will now become LEGAL for drivers to text and drive as long as it’s set up properly as hands free! Many cell phone providers have developed voice-activated/hands-free texting capabilities to help customers communicate easily while driving and keep their eyes on the road.

 The Orange County Registerrecently posted a great article explaining each of the systems that are on the market with their benefits and drawbacks. Each system works differently and truly depends on the quality of your car microphone, outside noise and of course the noise inside the vehicle (children, radio etc).

If you have an iPhone 4S then you have the luxury of traveling with its internal guide called “Siri.” She is an internal system that searches internet, iPhone data and more. Siri has the capability of sending messages hands-free and allowing you to create and send emails as well.

Android users us a program called “Jellybean” to dictate messages while using a Bluetooth or hands-free device. Once the 4.1 version of Jellybean comes out, connectivity will be considered even better and more accurate.

Other phone systems have hands-free options available…but be sure to keep your eyes on the road! Nothing that is ever said in a text message is worth crashing your vehicle or even worse causing a deadly accident.  Stay tuned to the OC Register updated on the new law that goes into effect on January 1, 2013! Drive safe our there!
