Receiving an Audio Message
When a Driver receives a Voice message from a Buddy, an Audio Alert plays through the vehicle's Bluetooth Stereo System.
The Audio Alert interrupts FM radios and all other streaming music. First, a beep sounds and then the voice message plays as below.
A voice message will not play automatically if Preview Audio Message is enabled.
If this option is enabled, the message is not played until the Play button on the Pod is pressed.
If this option is disabled, the Voice message plays automatically.
Voice messages are not supported for Riders.
