Seats will learn to recognize musicFebruary 27, 2018
Seat was the first manufacturer to integrate a popular music search application into their cars, Shazam. Service will start from April this year and will be available through special applications for the Android Auto platform.
Simultaneously with the provision of personalized services, the brand intends to develop projects in the field of “future mobility”. For this, inside the holding, along with Cupra, a new company will appear – XMOBA. It will study prospective trends and business models, as well as investing in projects related to solutions in the field of mobility. The first projects of XMOBA will be the platform justmoove, which allows you to pay for parking, travel on toll roads and refueling, and the Respiro carsharing service.
Seat also intends to become a party to the initiative of the Government of Catalonia to turn Barcelona into the “capital of the fifth generation networks.” Within the framework of the project, starting next year, 5G technology will be used on Seat prototypes connected to the Network.
In the spring of 2017, Blippar, specializing in the development of mobile applications, released Shazam for cars. This application allows you to recognize different models and learn their characteristics. For example, it can show the technical specification of the machine, the year it was released and the owners’ testimonials, as well as the approximate price.
