Key points about Entertainment voice commands

Most of the SYNC entertainment systems start to play as soon as you load media. With indexed devices, such as USB media players, SYNC first uploads the index, so it can take a few minutes for play to begin.

If you're already listening to an entertainment system, SYNC assumes your voice command is for that mode. To switch to a different entertainment system, you must name it to switch modes. For example, if Bluetooth Audio is streaming, and you want your USB media player, say "USB,” then give USB commands.34,48

"Track" refers to audio track and is usually the same as "song."

USB voice commands

Before giving commands, connect the device to the USB port and wait for the index to upload. If you don't hear sound within a few minutes, press Voice, then say "USB." Names must be given exactly as listed on the device.
