Over three years ago, Microsoft has disclosed its Windows in the car concept but that concept did not come into reality and ended there. But now Microsoft is again come with its technologies for the cars and this time it will go into the surface.
Previously Microsoft has provided car manufacturers such as Ford, Kia, BMW, and Fiat the special version of Windows for the cars. The automobile companies like Nissan and BMW both plan to integrate Microsoft’s Cortana assistant into their cars alongside PCs, Phones and other devices. After some time we could see user’s office with Office 365 integrations as one of the features in connected cars.
However, Microsoft’s patent for the connected cars will provide many features that will be helpful for the car owners to maintain their files via tools, users will also have cybersecurity and artificial intelligence features in their cars.
