One of the most exciting announcements to come from Apple’s developers conference this week was the news that it has partnered with nine automakers to integrate Siri into cars in the next 12 months. But apparently not all of the car companies are on the same page.Fast Company reached out to each of the nine car companies and found that “just a few” confirmed they are working to add Siri into their cars in that time frame. Others like Audi said it was unsure whether the project is doable in the next 12 months and Toyota said “there are no particular applications planned at this time.”

In fact, Fast Company notes that one car company, Chrysler, didn’t even seem to know about the news when asked.

“We haven’t seen the statements attributed to Apple and we have nothing to announce at this time,” one Chrysler spokesperson told the publication.
