During the BUILD, Microsoft has unveiled how they think music and navigation in cars should look like.
Microsoft Windows’ operating system already has in several of our cars. Among other things, BMW, Ford, Fiat with more have their infotainment-system built by Windows. But times are changing so therefore Microsoft has now revealed the design as they want will come in the future cars.
The new design will be used tiles as we know it from the Windows Phone and Windows 8. Microsoft would also like to take it to Mirrorlink which reflects your smartphone and thus open it up for more options. Unlike Apple who only want their own platform, so Mirrorlink will be supported in a number of devices from Sony Xperia series and Symbian phones. At the same time using Citroen, VW, Toyota and Honda are already of Mirrorlink and Pioneer and Alpine’s infotainment systems will also in the future to support Mirrorlink.
The new generation of Windows in cars is not only a concept, but something that will be tested in real cars right now, but with a different design. In the concept version, developers can even create new apps like design fits better for cars than if the same app just gets transferred from the Smartphone design. And in the new Windows infotainment system is thus also an app store so you actually don’t have to connect your smartphone or have a specific model in order to enjoy the features.
As it is still a concept under development, we should probably expect that it takes a considerable time before the system gets into our cars, but it turns in the direction that Microsoft is moving.
