Voice commands can be issued from any screen page after a short press on the "Voice commands" button located on the steering wheel or at the end of the lighting control stalk (depending on equipment), as long as there is no telephone call in progress.

DS 3. Steering wheel-mounted controls. First steps To ensure that voice commands are always recognised by the system, please follow these recommendations:

  • use natural language in a normal tone without breaking up words or raising your voice.
  • always wait for the "beep" (audible signal) before speaking.
  • for best results, closing the windows and sunroof is recommended, to avoid extraneous interference (depending on version).
  • before issuing a voice command, ask any other passengers to refrain from speaking.
