German automaker Mercedes-Benz has partnered with Microsoft to add ChatGPT generative artificial intelligence software to Mercedes-Benz cars in the U.S.

Microsoft said ChatGPT would make the vehicles' voice-command capability smoother by supporting more natural-seeming dialogue.

The system will be able to recall the context of discussions and engage in back-and-forth conversation with the driver or occupants.

Microsoft said the chatbot will allow the system to respond to more diverse requests, including those not related to the car or driver, and interact with other functions, like buying movie tickets.

U.S.-based Mercedes owners whose vehicles include the MBUX infotainment system have been able to beta-test ChatGPT since June 16.
