Windows 10 And Office 365 In Your Car

Microsoft Is Bringing Windows 10 and Office 365 to Your Car's Dashboard

Microsoft makes an end run around in-dash entertainment systems, working on in-dash productivity instead

While its competitors worry about who will power in-car entertainment solutions, Microsoft appears to be making a play to put the office in your dashboard.
Microsoft announced partnerships with Volvo, Nissan, IAV, and Harman at CES on Tuesday, tying each to its various apps or services. Though perhaps slightly less well known, the partnerships Microsoft struck with IAV and Harman were the most significant. In the case of IAV, for example, the component maker said it would actually work with Microsoft to stream Windows 10 to the car using the recent Continuum feature.

This collaboration between IAV, an engineering services firm and worldwide pioneer of highly automated driving, and Microsoft, a market leader for mobility and productivity solutions, is just the beginning of the partnership. In addition, the two companies intend to use Windows 10 Continuum to stream Windows 10 directly to the car's dashboard. For instance, it could integrate data and services into the vehicle through devices the driver already uses on his notebook, tablet PC or smartphone, with apps like Skype for Business, Calendar and Groove Music. A sample of this also will be demonstrated by the companies at CES.
