Use your phone with voice commands
A key feature of SYNC® with MyFord Touch® is using voice commands for hands-free calling.27
Key points about Phone voice commands
Unlike other voice commands, the Phone mode is always active, so you don’t have to first say “Phone” to switch modes. If you do say "Phone" first, the command still works.
Contact names must be said exactly as entered in your phonebook. Giving the location, such as “Mom at home” is optional, but helps streamline the voice dialogue between you and SYNC.
There is no voice command to end a call. To conclude a call, press the Phone button or wait for the other party to disconnect.
