Get an answer to your calling needs while on the wheels with Volvo integration for Skype into its 90 series cars. Now drivers can join the meetings at the press of a button from the center console of the care through the infotainment touchscreens. The integration of Skype is a way to get through the tough part of getting into the conference calls especially with entering lengthy pin codes and a sequence of buttons asking you for a chain of options before participating in the meeting. Volvo has partnered with Microsoft to do all within the range to reduce the distraction.
For some Skype in the car could be a bad idea as the focus is shifted to the calls and not on the road. But the good news here is that people who are motivated to conduct business call on the go will do it even if the integration is not available but the saving grace is that now drivers will be more focused while driving because of the less complexity in initiating a video call. With the new integration the steps to join a conference call is truly reduced making it convenient for the driver.
This is not just a one of integration with Microsoft for Volvo. The duo is now working on Cortana, virtual assistant to benefit the drivers via voice recognition, calendars and many other sources. Volvo is moving towards designing autonomous vehicle for the future with productivity software in the car. Though, it is a tough vision for a car manufacturer, but Volvo is aiming to achieve this with the help of Microsoft. The two are thinking of the future where commuting would be more than just leaving a place and arriving at another. The future for the cars will be high tech where businesses can be conducted from the car and Volvo is aiming to achieve this in the near future.
