The countdown to Christmas has commenced with less than three weeks to go until the big day. So here’s a little festive cheer from Maple Street to help get you into the spirit of the season.
Radioplayer has given the world’s first public demonstration of a tri-platform hybrid radio app (DAB+/FM/IP) within the Android Automotive operating system.
Developed in partnership with Panasonic Automotive Systems Europe, the app will allow users to select a radio station from the strongest available signal, prioritising DAB+, then FM, followed by streaming, and automatically switching between platforms if the car moves out of coverage. This means that drivers and passengers alike can stay locked into their favourite stations and enjoy the music and shows they love.
