Volvo and Google are joining forces to create a new Android infotainment system for the cars of the Swedish company. Within the partnership, the next generation of the Sensus platform will be built on an Android basis and developed jointly by both companies.

The partnership promises a new revolutionary approach that will improve the digital life of consumers when they are inside or around their cars. Volvo is working with Google and another initiative to update current models by adding the Google Local Search Localization app. This will be done by updating the Sensus Navigation system in current Volvo models.

“With the advent of Android, we will embrace a rich ecosystem while keeping our iconic Volvo user interface. We will offer hundreds of popular apps and the best integrated experience in this broad, connected environment,” said Henrik Green, SVP of research and development at Volvo, in a statement.

Volvo is not the only company that chooses to work with Android. Recently, Fiat Chrysler also announced that it will integrate Android Nougat in its Uconnect audio system. The main reason for changing the operating system is that it will open the door to a huge number of third-party applications and services.
