Volvo Among The First Carmakers To Offer Amazon Prime Video Service In Its Cars!

In today's fast-paced world, where every moment counts, Volvo Cars is taking the driving experience to a whole new level. Imagine recharging your energy, waiting for a loved one, or savouring a quiet moment away from the chaos – all while enjoying your favourite movies and videos right in the comfort of your Volvo car. Yes, you heard it right! Volvo is now making it possible by introducing Prime Video to Google Play for download in all markets where Google apps and services are available. But that's not all, YouTube is also set to join the entertainment party in Volvo cars with Google built-in. Let's dive into the details of this exciting development.

A Glimpse at the Future of In-Car Entertainment

As technology advances at breakneck speed, so does our demand for entertainment options. Volvo Cars, known for its commitment to safety and innovation, is embracing this trend by becoming one of the first car manufacturers to offer Prime Video in its cars. This move is set to redefine the way we enjoy our journeys, making every ride an immersive and enjoyable experience.

Amazon Prime Video in your Volvo Car

Starting from September 18th, Volvo car owners will have access to Prime Video as a pre-installed app via over-the-air update (OTA). This feature is the most useful in Electric vehicles, which you can use while your car is charging at a charging station.

This gradual rollout will bring the joy of streaming directly to your vehicle, ensuring you're always entertained during your travels. But what's even more impressive is that you can download Prime Video from Google Play, giving you the freedom to choose your favourite movies and series. Whether you're a fan of thrilling action films, heartwarming dramas, or side-splitting comedies, Prime Video has a vast library of content to cater to your preferences.

YouTube will be the next feature

YouTube is a global phenomenon, offering an endless array of videos covering everything from educational content to entertainment and vlogs. And soon, you won't need to reach for your smartphone to access this treasure trove of videos. Volvo is making it even easier by including YouTube as part of an OTA update.

Once the update rolls out, YouTube will be pre-installed in your Volvo car, ensuring that you can watch your favourite YouTubers and discover new content without any hassle.

Safety First

While entertainment is essential, safety remains Volvo's top priority. To ensure that drivers stay focused on the road, access to video streaming will only be available when the car is at a fully stationary position. This approach aligns with Volvo's commitment to making driving safer for everyone on the road.

Global Availability

The good news doesn't end there. Prime Video and YouTube will be available in Volvo cars with Google built-in globally, except in China, South Korea, and Vietnam. However, it's important to note that the availability of these features and services may vary from one market to another.

Some Additional Considerations

In certain markets, the data necessary for streaming these services (and other digital services) may not be provided with your vehicle by Volvo Cars. In markets where it is provided, it is subject to certain terms, conditions, and limitations. Therefore, it's advisable to check with your local Volvo dealership for specific details regarding these services.

A word from the Volvo Officials

Erik Severinson, Volvo's global head of new car programmes said, “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. We are delivering on our promise of building cars that grow with our customers over time.”
