Volvo to pre-install Skype in its upcoming models

Volvo to pre-install Skype in its upcoming models

Plenty of Volvo buyers belong to the corporate business world and expect the best features and gadgets in their cars a far as it comes to connectivity. Volvo does offer some cutting edge stuff and now announced that it is preparing to pre install Microsoft’s Skype for Business App in the systems of its own vehicles. This is the first time a car maker is planning to implement the software directly into the car. In the new models Volvo XC90, V90, and S90 the upcoming Skype meetings are displayed directly on the infotainment display of the vehicle, with just a tap on the display, the person can join the conference. 

Anders Tylman-Mikiewic, Vice President of Consumer Connectivity Services at Volvo said “We were all already in this situation. To sit in the car and try to join a conference. One fumbles on the smartphone, drops it or even forgets the long PIN code for connecting. It is not really the best way to start an important conversation. Most importantly, attention is not where it should be – on the road”.
