Awhile ago, Volvo spun off a company called Polestar that seems dead set on competing with Tesla and electric offerings from other companies. While the Polestar 1 is a hybrid that's already been crash tested and seen out in the wild, the more mysterious Polestar 2 is set to be Polestar's first all-electric car, and a direct competitor to the Tesla Model 3. This week, Polestar announced an extensive partnership with Google, claiming that the Polestar 2 will be the first car to offer a "full" Android experience. Instead of being at the mercy of auto manufacturers, maps, software updates, and even the car's voice assistant will all come straight from Google, and it'll apparently be compatible with regular Google Play apps. Polestar even released an interactive preview of the user interface, which offers the first full (top down) view of the car we've seen. Thanks to Electrek for the tip, and the app screenshot. It will also come equipped with other features sorely missing in automotive UI. The first of which is a digital voice assistant that is as helpful as it is conversational: Polestar 2 comes with an embedded Google Assistant. From optimising the temperature to picking a song, the Google Assistant lets you control things with your voice, leaving you free to focus on driving. With significant advancements in machine learning, language understanding, and speech recognition, the Assistant can understand and respond to you naturally.
