GM to use Android for its in-vehicle technology
General Motors has announced plans to introduce new in-vehicle technology designed to enhance the overall customer experience and make it easier for customers to bring their digital lives into future connected vehicles.
GM announced that it will work with Google to bring new options for a voice assistant, embedded navigation, and in-vehicle applications to compatible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles in regions around the world beginning in 2021. Broad deployment across all GM vehicle brands is expected to roll out in the years following.
“We are re-envisioning the future in-vehicle customer experience, and this is just the first step. The integration of select Google technology and services into our vehicle infotainment systems will foster a more connected and efficient driving experience,” said Santiago Chamorro, Vice President for Global Connected Customer Experience, GM. “We will continue to offer our own unique infotainment features that only GM can deliver, such as service recommendations, vehicle health status, in-vehicle commerce, and more, with the Google applications and services complementing our offerings.”
Future GM infotainment systems will continue to be powered by Android.
