Order pizza in a Ford car

Order pizza in a Ford car

Certain models of Ford car models will soon allow you to order pizza hands free: a Domino’s Pizza app will be linked to Sync Applink, which allows you to use certain mobile apps with speech recognition in your car.

Speech recognition

Sync Applink puts app data on your dashboard, with speech recognition as a way of communication. It allows you to listen to internet radio or to your tweets and soon ordering Domino’s Pizza pizza will also be possible. All you have to do is download the app to your smartphone and link it with Sync Applink.

 

“This is, no question, one of the coolest in a long list of recent technology innovations for Domino’s,” CEO Patrick Doyle has said. Other much-used Sync Applink apps are Parkopedia and Parkmobile: the former will help you find the nearest parking spot, while the latter lets you pay for that spot without the need to whip out your smartphone.
