MFT now reads TXT msgs from my iPhone
 
Sunday I received a txt message on my iPhone. I got the notice on MFT screen. I touched read and it read it to me. My Focus is almost 2 and that has never happened. Now I want to see if I can respond to a txt.

Sunday evening I was watching amazing race and I saw they were using that feature in the show as a way of promoting Ford products. Coincidence .... hmmmmm [dunno]

Has anyone else experienced this?

Being notified and having the text read to me from my iPhone has worked for me since the 3.5.1 update.

Is it possible to return a txt msg from a preset list of responses?

The reply feature still doesn't work with iPhone

Just use Siri to reply

I see the "call" feature is also greyed out. Overall I like it a lot!

Very Interesting!!!

Yesterday driving home I got a text and it also popped up on my MFT screen. I applied the 3.5.1 update a while ago and this is the first text which has displayed. Not sure what changed at all. But it seems to be working now...

I can't reply but I can read it.

Hey, everyone -

I'm excited to see more and more iPhone users talking about this! We haven't been able to replicate this during our testing, but we continue to work with Apple.

Hopefully the system will soon be able to read your message and reply. :)

Stay tuned to our owner forum for upcoming announcements:

Maybe my car knew I was going to watch Amazing Race and see the feature in use on the TV show ... I think that scared it into turning on!
