Bluetooth for hands-free calling has been around for several years. Chevrolet MyLink1 takes that Bluetooth technology to the next level with streaming audio.

Press the PUSH TO TALK button on your steering wheel and say, "Play Bluetooth Audio" or "Shuffle On," if the device supports that type of functionality.
