The Audi Webshop is the result of a joint development between the Volkswagen Group’s CARIAD software division and Harman Ignite, an in-vehicle application platform from a well-known infotainment specialist.
The Audi Store organizes its apps into categories. At launch, it will feature sections for music, games, video, navigation, parking, charging (for EVs and PHEVs), productivity, weather and news, the brand says.
