Details available for Android Automotive media apps at Polestar 2 launch

Google has been trying to dominate and expand in various segments of the market. The automotive market is one of those domains, and Google has been working on a model-esque OS for cars for a long time. The company has made a new OS that automakers can use and customized as per their preference. The OS base will be based on the Android operating system as it provides almost unlimited customization options.

The company will be launching the new device Polestar 2 very soon, which will be the first vehicle with Android Automotive. The company has also revealed the initial app lineup that can be used through the device. The Polestar 2 is an electric fastback from the Volvo Car Group in Sweden and China’s Geely. The device will be made available later this year and will compete directly with the Tesla Model 3. The apps that will be available at launch for Polestar 2 are mentioned below.

  • Podcast apps Castbox and Pocket Casts
  • Library app Libby
  • Radio apps iHeartRadio, Swedish Radio Play and NRK Radio; Bauer Media Audio’s Magic Radio and Radioplayer apps
  • Music and podcast app Spotify

Google also showcases the integration of Youtube and Google Maps to the same platform last year, which will be continued and made better. The apps are available for Android Automotive vehicles, including the Volvo XC40 Recharge and GM, when it launches its first AA vehicles in 2021. Not only this, but the device will also get a custom app store, which will add a lot more applications in the future.

The device will also include three years of internet connectivity, available directly inside the car. The device will also have a new version of the Android Automotive emulator, which will fully implement embedded Google apps and services.
