2016 BMW 7 Series Features Android Auto Compatibility


WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The 2016 BMW 7 Series flagship sedan is the latest vehicle to offer Android Auto compatibility.

BMW of North America announced on Tuesday that the first BMW Apps integrations for Android devices will be iHeartRadio, Spotify and Pandora.

Drivers of the 7 Series will be able to access and control the services through their iDrive controller and screen.

An Android user with OS 4.2 or later should download the BMW Connected app from Google Play and connect their phone over Bluetooth to the 7 Series with the BMW Apps option.

"App integration for all other vehicles equipped with BMW Apps and Mini Connected will follow at a later date," the automaker said in a statement.

The 7 Series joins a growing list of vehicles that either have Android Auto compatibility or will have it soon.

They include the 2016 Buick LaCrosse, 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, 2017 Ford Escape and 2016 Volvo XC90.

Edmunds says: BMW 7 Series drivers get access to three of the most popular music streaming services with the Android Auto rollout.
