New Bluetooth models support hands-free phone calls, pairing of two phones simultaneously and wireless music streaming as well as one push voice dialing, POI search, music cueing, and other phone function controls via Siri Eyes-Free-Mode for supported iOS Devices and via voice command for compatible smartphones. JVC’s own “JVC Smart Music Control” app, a free download on Google Play, acts as an Android wireless remote control for the receiver by allowing operation of almost all key functions wirelessly via the user’s voice and touch commands. Among other functions, the app has increased its feature set this year allowing users to change parametric EQ settings, sync their receiver’s illumination colors to the current music playing and receive voice commands from supported navigation apps simultaneously during music playback.
