Car applications demand more and more the use of speech technologies. Drivers must concentrate on controlling the car and the non-use of hands makes the voice a valuable tool. Here we analyze the possibility of identifying the user of a car through her/his voice in order to develop some useful applications, and establish preferences, some of them related to music. The identification will be done in parallel to speech commands which will be given to devices in the car in the future. Once the user is identified, the system loads a personal profile. It includes music preferences which can be downloaded from the Internet databases using e.g. MPEG-7 .
