I have been testing the voice command function on my M3. So far I only know a few commands;
"Navigate to..."
"Cancel navigation"
"Call ..."

What other commands are there?
I was hoping there would be one for folding/unfolding side mirrors.
How do I ask it to play music from my phone?

When playing music from a USB connected SSD I can say "Play ... song name" It pops up the song titles that match. You still have to tap to actually play but it greatly reduces the onscreen searching to find tracks (which is pretty ropey by modern standards). It doesn't work with album titles unfortunately, only individual tracks.

Though I have USB music, Tune-In and Spotify premiums, my fail rate for verbal music commands is about 90%. Not great. It hears what I have said generally, but cannot work out to to implement that. Not sure what to do differently.

There's an older thread on this - I'm sure they'll have added some - but might be good as a starter for 10...

===NAVIGATE===
"Navigate to <place>"
“Where is the nearest Starbucks?”
"Drive to the Kettleman City Supercharger"
"Take me to a movie theater"
“Drive home” (if you configured a home address)
"Navigate to work" (if you configured a work address)
"Cancel Trip"
"Cancel Navigation"

===PHONE===
“Call <name>”
"Dial <name>"

===MUSIC=== ( It searches the streaming music services. )
“Play <song/artist/genre>”
“Play Smooth Jazz”
"Listen to Rolling Stones"

===MISC===
“bug report” (then describe the problem.)
"ho ho ho" (activates Santa mode easter egg.)

Known working voice commands?

I got the track name to pop up, and clicked/pressed on it, but it wouldn't play. The track was from USB [edited - added]- FLAC format copied from music server. Played if selected manually.

I have tried "Play [radio station]" and all it does is switch on the radio to some random frequency which is just white noise. What's the point of that? Do I have to program presets when they're already listed anyway?

Things I would like to be able to do with voice commands:
1.Control wipers (on/off & speed)
2.Control climate settings (on/off & increase/decrease)
3.Control songs from my linked phone & select radio stations
4.Fold/unfold side mirrors
5.Have the car read out messages from my phone

This is quite a disappointment to me... I expected to be using voice controls for loads of car functions before i bought the car!

Pretty crap implementation just now... I hope they are working on it... quite an important safety feature really.
