    Pretty sure that’s Volvo’s CarPlay promo video.

      A better title would be: “Volvo’s promo video of Apple CarPlay”

    The iPhone is the source of this new car experience. Lends credence to those espousing the idea that the iPhone would be the source of any “TV SET” experience Apple is working on.

    I like Volvo’s shout out to local Swedish talent In Flames. Jim I’m surprised you didn’t notice that.

    My memory is very fuzzy, but I remember hearing way back in the early 2000′s that Bill Gates claimed the future in technology would be phones, TV, and in-car. Does anybody remember hearing that? I still can’t find the source.

    My next car will be an American Tesla. I hope they start integrating this into their cars.

      Tesla already has android in their dashboard. so the answer would be no.

        It sounds like Tesla wanted to bring Chrome Browser and an Android Emulator to the Model S. Based on that, it sounds like the media and dashboard system isn’t actually built on Android.

    Looks smooth as butter!

    I’m reallllly pleased to see they opened it up to other apps. That’s a shocker but a great move. It seems more Apple TV than App Store but still..baby steps. :)

      It will be interesting to find out how those 3rd party apps get added to an owner’s CarPlay system. Is it meta data in the app that the CarPlay system scans for?

        It’s a completely different app, I think. The UX is far from the same so I’d expect the apps to be new.

        This feels like Apple-chosen apps.

      don’t worry google won’t be part of it.
