Ola Play and Microsoft join hands for connected vehicle platform

Cab aggregator Ola has partnered with Micorsoft to build connected vehicle platform for car manufacturers worldwide. This platform will be built on top of Ola’s existing infotainment platform Ola Play using Microsoft’s solutions for the cloud, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The cab aggregator is upgrading Ola Play with customised services, information, and tools. For instance, Ola Play users will be able to check vehicle conditions, fuel efficiency, engine performance, etc. And, the platform will be customised as per customer’s preferences such as preferred AC temperature in the car, navigation, amongst others. The new platform will also help drivers to predict vehicle’s breakdowns and predict maintenance of vehicles.

Moreover, Microsoft will provide its productivity tools including Office 365, Skype for Business, voice-based assistance, amongst other to the Ola Play users.

Ola’s spokesperson clarified that currently, the cab aggregator is upgrading its Ola Play for only Ola riders, but going forward Ola will offer it to the vehicle manufacturers to integrate with their vehicle systems.

Ola launched its onboard infotainment system Ola Play in November last year, for select Prime users in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi.  It has now expanded to six cities and the latest being Pune and Chennai. As of now, the onboard system had features like music, Live TV streaming and video streaming from Apple Music, Sony LIV, Audio Compass, Fynd etc which can be controlled using the Ola app. The platform allows customers to resume music, videos etc., from where they left it last.
