Audi to bring Android and iOS into cars
Interact with your Audi
Audi is set to bring the Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay software platforms into their cars. Major functions will be integrated into the Audi MMI (Multi Media Interface) in the future.
Audi is a founding member of the Google Open Automotive Alliance (OAA). This cooperation was launched in early 2014 with the goal of integrating the Android platform and its apps into cars under the “Android Auto” banner. Initial results are already available in the form of services such as navigation via Google Maps and the streaming service Google Play Music. An as updates and new types of apps are developed, users simply need to update their phone to have access to the latest versions in their car.
Integration of CarPlay is also taking place through intensive dialogue between the Audi development lab in Silicon Valley and Apple.
This close cooperation between both companies enables optimum integration of the two most widespread smart phone platforms into the Audi MMI.
Customers will be now be able to choose at any time which of these platforms they wish to use in their cars. Meaning once again your phone doesn’t pick the car you do!
Audi, which has announced that it, is to bringing the software platforms into its cars from early 2015.
