Volvo Partners with Google to Fuse Android in Next Gen Connected Vehicles

Volvo Cars has announced a close partnership with Google, one of the world’s largest technology companies, to develop the next generation of its in-car infotainment and connectivity solution based on Android, offering access to a wide array of apps and services.

It will launch on new Volvo models within two years.

“Google’s platform and services will enhance the user experience by enabling more personalization possibilities, while Android will offer increased flexibility from a development perspective,” said Henrik Green, Senior Vice President Research & Development at Volvo Car Group.

Volvo believes smart partnerships are the future for the car industry.

Noted Patrick Brady, Vice President of Android Engineering at Google, “This partnership gives us the opportunity to deliver a more seamless experience to Volvo drivers through a full-featured infotainment platform and rich ecosystem of Android applications and Google services.”

Volvo is also collaborating with Google on another initiative to update recent Volvo models by adding Google Local Search, a location based service application. This will be released through an update to customers with Sensus Navigation.
