Audi Amazon Music And Soccer World Cup ticker Features Introduced to make sure they are connected to the digital world
Audi drivers can now also use Amazon Music to listen to their favorite artists in the car. The streaming service is a new component of the Audi connect services. Audi thus continues to drive the digitalization of its cars. And just like it did for the 2016 soccer European Championship, Audi is offering customers a special information service for the 2018 World Cup so they can stay on the ball even while on the road.
Audi Amazon Music is a streaming service offering up to 50 million songs, plus a variety of live broadcasts such as coverage of soccer games and other sports events. Audi has fully integrated the service into the car’s infotainment system for maximum user convenience. For example, drivers can – depending on the MMI system – use handwriting input to search for songs or artists and the hit list appears after just a few letters.
Audi Amazon Musicin the car requires that the latest version of the free myAudi app be installed on the user’s smartphone. The second condition is a SIM card with data volume in the car. This can be either the Audi connect SIM permanently installed in the car or the user’s own SIM card in the car. Online streaming uses wireless data packages, which customers can order for the Audi connect SIM. All they have to do is connect their smartphone to the infotainment system via Wi-Fi. Thanks to the Wi-Fi connection, the streaming service delivers excellent sound quality.
The scope of service depends on the customer’s Amazon Music membership. Amazon Music can be integrated into all Audi models with an MIB 2 or MIB 2+ infotainment system. Audi currently offers the service in Germany, the USA, the UK, France, Spain and Italy. Additional information about the Audi connect SIM is available at www.myaudi.com.
Independent of Amazon Music, Audi has a special offer for soccer fans: During the World Cup, which will take place in Russia in June and July, the brand is offering the “2018 World Cup Ticker” in Europe. This temporary information service, which Audi offered in a similar form during the 2016 European Championship, keeps customers informed about team news, the match schedule, current scores, results and the standings even while on the road. The 2018 World Cup Ticker is part of the connect portfolio in all Audi models equipped with an online-ready 3G+, MIB 1 or MIB 2 MMI infotainment system. It requires an active data connection.
