Navigation app Waze has just become the latest addition to Volvo’s in-car app library. Available to all Volvo cars worldwide with Google built-in, this collaboration also sees the US and Asia Pacific markets experience Waze in-car for the first time.
Waze’s real-time routing, navigation and alerts are available with not more than a one-time setup after downloading via the Google Play Store in your Volvo. Offering all the features that has made the phone app so popular, Waze in-car provides the same distraction free navigation experience.
Android emulator, offered on the Volvo Cars Developer Portal, Waze utilized this to develop and test the in-car app virtually alongside the car’s infotainment system. The result was a user experience that uses more of the central screen, making directions easier to see and creating less distraction.
From Volvo Cars: “The Waze app is available for download on the Google Play Store on all Volvo cars with Google built-in in Volvo Car’ markets globally except China, South Korea and Vietnam.”
