Volvo has announced that drivers can expect a new Android-powered infotainment system in its latest car models to provide a more immersive in-car experience. The system has been developed in partnership with Google and helps to rethink how drivers stay connected when they get into their car. The new infotainment system will be arriving in the XC6-, S90, V90 and V90 Cross Country models.
The new Android-powered infotainment system will also provide drivers with hands-free access to voice assistant technology thanks to Google Assistant compatibility. This is positioned as an enhanced convenience feature, but could also increase the safety capabilities of the driver by eliminating the need for them to physically interact with the display when the vehicle is in motion.
