Munich. The BMW Group has created the perfect platform for seamlessly integrating customers’ music streaming services into their car: Connected Music. This new digital offering allows unrestricted in-car access to customers’ Spotify, Napster or Deezer streaming accounts, complete with their personal playlists and settings. Connection is via the car’s own SIM card rather than indirectly using a smartphone, meaning the services do not consume any of the customers’ personal data allowance.

The integration of the services has been optimised for Operating System 7 and tailored to customers’ requirements, with further improvements made to the previous connection. This comprehensive integration ensures using the streaming services in the car is self-explanatory and similarly straightforward as with a smartphone. One highlight feature here is the option to use the services via the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and request a particular artist, song or album (“Hey BMW, play the track Happy”). Users can also ask for information on the song currently being played, request personal favourites (“Play my favourites”) or (de)select the shuffle function.

To use Connected Music in their BMW, all the customer has to do is log in with their personal premium account. Favourites and playlists from the linked account will then be synchronised automatically, providing direct access to individual playlists and settings. Once a song has been played, Connected Music saves it to the hard drive of the in-car audio system. Users can therefore still access their music if the connection is interrupted.

Connected Music is part of the Connected Package Professional since January 2020, which means it is integrated into vehicles for a period of three years ex-factory. There are no additional data or roaming charges to pay in 14 countries in Europe.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
