Volvo Cars is among the first carmakers to offer Prime Video in its cars and YouTube – home to all episodes of the Wayfarer TV show – is also coming soon to Volvo cars with Google builtin.
The company says the service will become available as a preinstalled app starting from September 18th with a gradual rollout via overtheair update (OTA), market by market.
“Adding access to services such as Prime Video and YouTube in our cars bolsters the continuously growing list of software and applications to make lives for our drivers better,” says Erik Severinson, our global head of new car programmes.
“We are delivering on our promise of building cars that grow with our customers over time.”
With safety at the core of Volvo’s business, access to video streaming will only be available when the car is at a fully stationary.
