Volvo and Audi are looking to do more with Android in its forthcoming connected vehicles, the companies announced on Monday ahead of this week’s Google I/O developer conference. The companies will be showing off the fruits of this deeper integration at the event in San Jose, which goes beyond entertainment and navigation to help drivers and passengers control AC, windows, sunroof and more via Android
The integration of Android throughout more of the infotainment experience in cars is a win for Google, which is moving out ahead of competitors like Apple in terms of gaining more real estate in automobiles. This will become increasingly important as vehicles become sites for more mobile activity and additional connected activities, which will lead to more generation of data that can be useful to Google as an advertising platform, as well as for other aspects of its business including media delivery
For Volvo and Audi, the advantage is more about meeting customers where they are – the dominant interface of any average person’s life is still going to be their smartphone for the foreseeable future. Plus, as infotainment tech has evolved, car makers have been struggling to keep up in terms of providing intuitive ways for people to operate their vehicles
The built-in infotainment system could allow users to control their air conditioning, sunroof, and windows, find the nearest restaurant with Google Maps, listen to Spotify or NPR. It will even allow Google Assistant to run on the dashboard. The main aim is to restrict the usage of phone. Volvo says it plans to launch new models within two years with Android, while Audi will show its version off in the new Audi Q8 Sport concept.
