There’s an app for everything now, so it only makes sense that BMW get in on the fun. Being that they’re always ahead of the curve, our Cincinnati BMW dealer is happy to announce that the first BMW Apps integrations for Android devices will be iHeartRadio, Spotify, and Pandora. While the BMW Apps option first launched for iOS in 2011, this is the first time that it will be available for Android users. Drivers who slide behind the wheel of the 2016 BMW 7 Series will be able to access these apps through their iDrive controller and screen, which allows your focus to remain on the road with seamless connectivity.
The main goal of the BMW Apps is to provide convenience and safety for the drivers, as they can effortlessly stream their favorite audio, change stations, make playlists of their favorite tunes, and toggle between the apps. All too often technology can be difficult to use, but that isn’t the case here. All that’s needed to download the BMW Connected app is for an Android user to have OS 4.2 or later and then connect their phone over Bluetooth in their BMW 7 Series. App integration for other models with BMW Apps will follow at a later date.
Drivers will enjoy a number of features throughout the music streaming apps, as they’ll be able to give every one of their trips its own playlist. So lower the windows and turn up the jams, it’s time for you to have some fun on the road again!
On the Radio Whoa Oh-Oh
iHeartRadio with BMW Apps for Android
iHeartRadio is the leading all-in-one streaming music digital radio service. When paired with the new BMW 7 Series, drivers will have the the ability to access thousands of iHeartRadio’s Live Radio stations along with over 20 million songs. Cincinnati BMW 7 Series drivers can create a personalized “For You” setting that will tailor recommendations based on your preferences and history.
Spotify, which is the world’s leading music streaming service, will give drivers access to both their free and Premium services that lets you access your music, playlists, Radio, and the Browse feature all while being ad-free.
Pandora with BMW Apps for Android
Pandora, the world’s most powerful music discovery platform, will give drivers access to existing stations or allow them to create new stations through the iDrive Controller and rate the songs on a thumb-up and thumb-down system which helps personalize your station.
BMW takes pride in making their vehicles some of the most cutting edge rides on the road. The 2016 BMW 7 Series is the latest example of that with its integration of seamlessly streaming music. We can’t wait to introduce this technology to you, so come on in to our Cincinnati BMW dealer to try it out for yourself today!
