Swedish carmaker Volvo has partnered with Google to develop the next-generation car infotainment system and connectivity based on the Android platform. The company will launch the new Volvo models in two years.
The new development is aimed to rework how customers interact with their cars. A large array of Android apps will be available at the customer's disposal to help with connective and predictive services in and around the car.
Volvo believes smart partnerships are the future of the automotive industry. The carmaker believes using Android as the base will increase speed and flexibility in development and will offer customers a good personalised connected car experience.
Volvo is also collaborating with Google to update recent Volvo models with Google Local Search, a location-based search application. This will be released through an update to customers with Sensus Navigation.
