Alternatively, second and third row passengers can now communicate easily with the first row – eliminating the need for them to raise their voice or strain forward in their seats.

The second is ClearChat with Far-End Noise Cancellation: Using beamforming microphones, echo cancellation and noise reduction algorithms to remove unwanted cabin noise - including air conditioning, road noise or rear seat passengers, for listeners on the receiving end of a call.

The third is Personal Communication Zones. This gives every occupant the freedom to simultaneously interact with their voice assistant of choice or have a phone call with confidence that call recipients won’t hear the music or entertainment from others in the vehicle.
