Prime Video offers entertainment to Polestar 2 owners in the UAE
Polestar 2 was the first car on the market to feature Google’s Android Automotive OS with Google built-in when it launched in 2019. It continues to pioneer the intuitive infotainment experience with the addition of Prime Video. Accessible to stream content while parked or charging, Prime Video joins YouTube, which launched in Polestar 2 in June 2023.
Since its launch, Polestar and related suppliers have continuously released valuable apps for the car, including the likes of Waze, EasyPark, A Better Routeplanner, AccuWeather, Range Assistant, Journey Log and the Performance app for dual-motor cars.
Polestar 2 has also featured the Vivaldi web browser since December 2021, which unlocks web access to other entertainment services that may not yet have a native in-car app.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, comments: “The successful launch and integration of Android Automotive OS in Polestar 2 has proven that we can leverage the best navigation and voice control in the business to make life with a Polestar easier. The Google Play Store has also gained various apps that offer interactivity and entertainment, from playing games to streaming series.”
The launch and ongoing development of Android Automotive OS in Polestar 2, done in close collaboration with Google, has laid the foundations for Polestar’s forthcoming cars. Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 feature an evolution of the interface with larger screens and more capability. Apps developed for Polestar 2 are also planned to be available in future cars.
