Google and Chrysler join hands for new infotainment system

You might have an idea regarding the Google and Chrysler collaboration that’s bringing Google’s self-driving tech to the Chrysler Pacifica minivan. However, it appears as the two firms are doing much more than that. Chrysler expresses that is joining hands with Google to come up with a new Android-powered Uconnect infotainment system.

It isn’t the Android Auto platform that went ignored sometime back but FCA says that the connected car system will be made on the Android Open Source Platform. Building the platform on Android will give complete access to Google Maps, Assistant and Android apps such as Spotify, NPR One as well as Pocket Casts.

But the system will still be generally a Uconnect system in terms of features as well as look. It will have radio and comfort controls. 

The new system will be displayed at CES and you can explore it in person.
