volvo integrates google products into its vehicles

Volvo's final plans with Google for the first time announced last year were screened. In the plans built on the strategic relationships of the two companies, products from technology companies such as Google Maps, Google Now will be integrated into Volvo vehicles. The first Android-based system aims to be released to the market a few years later.

Volvo announced it is working to deploy Google Now, Google Play Store, Google Maps and other Google services into the next-generation Sensus infotainment system based on Google's Android operating system.

In working with Volvo Cars with Google, the goal is to further improve the way customers interact with vehicles. The applications and services developed by Google and Volvo Cars will be in the car.


According to a statement made by the vehicle maker, the new generation Sensus will work on Android, so new applications and software updates will be available in real time on the vehicle. Vehicle drivers, on the other hand, will also be able to access thousands of additional apps on the Google Play Store.

Will improve in-car experience
"Soon, Volvo drivers will have direct access to thousands of in-car applications that make daily life easier and make the in-car experience more enjoyable," said Henrik Green, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Volvo Cars.

Google Now provides a centralized audio interface that allows the car to control app functions such as air conditioning, use apps to play music and send messages. Thus, the system that improves the comfort inside the vehicle will enable the drivers to keep their attention on the road.

Google Maps will provide the next generation Sensus with refreshed maps and traffic data in real time. The system will notify the drivers of the traffic conditions, but will also suggest alternate routes to the drivers. Meanwhile, the company continues to develop its own applications, software and connected services within the Volvo Car Group, using the power of growing software engineers.

Google products will undoubtedly help drivers further develop the Volvo car experience.
