In a partnership with Google, Volvo has announced that they will have Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Play Store and other Google services built into the latest version of their Sensus infotainment system. Additionally their new infotainment system will be powered by Google’s Android operating system.

By having these Google services natively embedded into their cars, regardless of having an iPhone or an Android phone, users could use Google Assistant voice commands feature to control all of their infotainment needs. Utilizing a 4G cellular connection from AT&T to access these features users would not need to use data plans on their phones.

“Bringing Google services into Volvo cars will accelerate innovation in connectivity and boost our development in applications and connected services,” said Henrik Green, senior vice president of research and development at Volvo Cars. “Soon, Volvo drivers will have direct access to thousands of in-car apps that make daily life easier and the connected in-car experience more enjoyable.”

So just like that Volvo moves to the top of the list for auto manufactures to embrace connected car technology.
