These days in Mountain View, California, is holding the Google I / O conference, considered the largest and most important event of the software development industry in the world. Volvo and Audi took the opportunity to present their new multimedia system, both based on the Android operating system.
Volvo, in partnership with Google, will develop the next generation of its multimedia system and connectivity, built with Android, providing a wide range of applications and services. Within two years, the new Volvo models will be equipped with them. This association promises to revolutionize the way drivers interact with their vehicles.
Henrik Green, vice president of research and development at Volvo said: “With the advent of Android, we will welcome a rich ecosystem while retaining the iconic interface of Volvo. We will offer hundreds of popular applications and the best user experience in this vast connected environment. ”
On the Audi side, it was on board its Audi Q8 Sport concept that its technology platform, which already counts on Android, was unveiled. New features include Spotify, Google Play Music and the Google Wizard, all available on the large MMI touchscreen.
The seamless integration of Android offers tremendous potential, and with more than 1.4 billion users worldwide, it is without a doubt the most popular platform on the planet.
