STOCKHOLM – Volvos of the future will come complete with Android-based entertainment systems. The Swedish carmaker said it will offer a new in-car infotainment system that will allow users to install apps from the Android App Store, which Volvo hopes will let its customers access “connected and predictive services in and around the car.”

“Google’s platform and services will enhance the user experience by enabling more personalisation possibilities, while Android will offer increased flexibility from a development perspective,” said Henrik Green, senior R&D veep at Volvo.


Bloomberg reports that the Android infotainment system will support touchscreen functions and be bundled with Google Maps and Spotify, among others.
