Audi Soon to Get Android On-Board

Smart goes the smartest, now that’s Audi who is been partnering with the Google for acquiring the Android for its lineup, claims a report on internet. The hand-shake between IT and Auto giant is said to take place at CES 2014. Getting the Android on-board means a better connectivity of customers with their Audi, and also the ease in usage of car’s infotainment system. Report further claims, the Ingolstadt based carmaker too will be associating with other tech-giants for getting the Nvidia installed in its central console. Hope so, it is now safe to utter that infotainment in the Audis will never be the same again; hopefully the four-ringed carmaker is the first one to do so with “Android”.

In competition, Apple too recently announced its collaboration with the Mercedes-Benz, BMW Honda for the “iOS in the car”. This initiative of Apple allowed user to access their in-car infotainment system via their apple devices; unlikely the case with Android is where one is not needed an Android device to control its car system. An access to Android on Audis will allow owners to access navigation, music, and apps too. it will be definitely exciting to see how the auto companies are going to shape-up this competition in the future.
