Swedish lux­ury car com­pany volvo cars has an­nounced that it will em­bed Google As­sis­tant, Google Play Store, Google Maps and other Google ser­vices within its nextgen­er­a­tion Sen­sus in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem. This An­droid-based in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem will al­low cus­tomers to en­gage and in­ter­act with their cars. Us­ing the Google As­sis­tant, Volvo own­ers will be able to con­trol in-car func­tions such as air con­di­tion­ing, heat­ing, mu­sic, nav­i­ga­tion and even send mes­sages by speak­ing to the Google As­sis­tant. The in­te­gra­tion of Google Maps will keep the driver in­formed about the traf­fic, es­ti­mated time of ar­rival, the route to fol­low and even alternate routes in case of heavy traf­fic.

“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.
