Audi introduces YouTube in cars

Audi recently disclosed intentions to introduce an app store for vehicles with the MIB 3 infotainment system, and the business has already included a YouTube app.

The feature is noteworthy since it's the first video app in the Audi store, and "more than 500 hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute." It's available on a few 2024 models, including the A4/A5, Q5, A6, A7, A8, and e-tron GT.

As a result, there will be enough to watch while you wait for your kids to finish school or while you charge your car. According to Audi, the in-car app functions like a smartphone, letting subscribers sign in to YouTube Premium and access ad-free videos and live streaming.

Customers stand to benefit from this since they may unwind and enjoy themselves while watching videos on a big screen. Videos, however, will only begin to play when the car is in park for safety reasons.

Although Audi is the first Volkswagen Group brand to provide streaming video, other brands will soon follow, according to the firm. One of these is the updated Porsche Cayenne, which boasts a 10.9-inch passenger display that can stream videos via Screenhits TV as an option.

Returning to Audi, the company has previously disclosed that its store would include a variety of well-known apps, such as Spotify, TikTok, and Yelp. The Weather Channel and Webex are also available to users.
