Slacker leverages GM flexible app framework
By taking advantage of GM’s flexible app framework, which allows consumers to add apps and features after their initial purchase of a vehicle, the music service Slacker (www.slacker.com) will soon be available to drivers nationwide. GM joins current Slacker automotive distribution partners Acura, Chrysler, Ford Motor Company, Honda, Toyota Scion and Tesla.
The implementation of Slacker in GM vehicles is made seamless through new infotainment systems, debuting in select 2014 MY vehicles that will change how in-vehicle apps are offered today. The systems’ framework includes an app catalog that will allow vehicle owners to choose from a menu of available applications specifically designed for the in-vehicle experience.
“Slacker is excited to bring the most complete music service on earth to millions of GM customers this year,” said Jonathan Sasse, senior vice president of products and programming at Slacker. “With free access to millions of songs, hundreds of expert-programmed stations, and the best in news and sports, those rides across town and across the country are about to become a lot more entertaining.”
