Audioburst’s new driver-focused app was shown at the launch of the fully electric Volvo XC40. The Volvo XC40 features a new infotainment system powered by Android.
In Summer 2019 Audioburst released “Audioburst Auto” to bring the best moments from thousands of podcasts and radio shows to the car, allowing drivers and passengers the ability to enjoy real-time entertainment, hands-free. In collaboration with Google, Audioburst expanded its in-vehicle capabilities to support Android Automotive OS. The app delivers three main functionalities: specially curated playlists, a personalized news feed, and voice search.
Volvo unveiled its entry into the electric vehicle space, the Volvo XC40 EV. In addition to a host of highly anticipated features, the Volvo XC40 EV will be introducing an Android-powered infotainment system, featuring apps and services built-in and optimized for the car, including the Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the Google Play Store. The Audioburst app was one of the apps shown during the event to demonstrate the capabilities of the new system.
The fully electric Volvo XC40 is set to be released in 2020.
