Let's now take a look at some of the features that will be available on Fiat-Chrysler's 8.4-inch Uconnect display thanks to Android. While we wait to find out a few more details, the two companies' new infotainment system will run Android Nougat 7.0 and include some interesting features. The new platform will allow Uconnect to integrate with Google's numerous operating system apps, such as Google Assistant, Google Maps and many other entertainment apps, among which we find music and radio listening apps. As FCA's Chris Barman says, "With Android, we're able to keep Uconnect's interface unique and intuitive, all while integrating our easy-to-use system with Android's features and its ecosystem of apps."
