After holding what we're sure were enough clinics to start a psych practice, General Motors has unveiled a redesign of its OnStar buttons and certain features for its 2013 products. The biggest change comes with the hands-free calling button, which gets swapped from a telephone icon to one of a person speaking. In addition to still making and taking calls, OnStar takes voice commands so that drivers can check on a saved route, traffic, weather and more. The new button also matches up with the voice command button on the touchscreen interfaces for MyLink, CUE and IntelliLink.

The two remaining buttons get less drastic makoevers. With OnStar's move into global markets, the emergency button sports now sports "SOS" instead of the white cross, the former graphic being internationally recognized as a request for help. And the OnStar button itself is updated with the brand's logo that was redesigned in 2010.

Certain 2013 Chevrolet Camaro models get a further aesthetic treat, with the 2SS, 2LT and ZL1 models getting touchscreen interfaces on frameless mirrors. The same three button will illuminate when touched, then disappear. Check out the press release below for more info.
