The Polestar 2 has been obsessively designed and engineered to provide a unique driver experience. And thanks to the Android-powered infotainment system, it’s also a space in which to work, hang out, and, in the near future, shop. Explore the smart functionalities that add a new dimension to car ownership.
The Android Automotive software on board the Polestar 2, is the first in the world to be integrated into the car’s digital ecosystem. Apps are able to interact directly with the car, allowing for an easier, safer and more engaging ride. As more native apps will become available, the Polestar 2 will become even more hassle-free to drive. It’s a car that improves with each update.
From messaging to making appointments. From navigation to streaming music. From finding the right restaurant to the right gift. The natural voice control of Google Assistant allows you to tell the Polestar 2 what to do, instead of taking your hands off the wheel. Just say “Hey Google” and the car is all ears.
For the first three years, all the internet data your Polestar 2 uses is included in the car’s purchase price. This means unrestricted navigation, streaming, and app use, without worrying about bundle limitations.
The Polestar 2 runs a lot of media apps you might recognise from your smartphone, optimised for the in-car experience. And if you’re signed in to the same media service on both, you can enjoy seamless playback, picking up on one where you left off on the other.
Android Automotive is a native operating system. Android or iOS smartphones easily connect with it via Bluetooth, with Apple CarPlay coming in the near future. A Google account isn’t required, but will allow for seamless synchronisation from a phone to the car.
The benefits of Android Automotive extend beyond the confines of the car. Through the Google Home app you can connect smart home appliances to Google Assistant and make them available from within the Polestar 2. Learn if you need to stock up the fridge on the way back. Activate the robot vacuum cleaner or turn up the central heating. Polestar 2 gets chores done remotely.
