At the point when you think about every one of the features that Google keeps on adding to Android Auto, one that might never strike a chord is an internet browser for pretty obvious reasons.
In any case, the brand Vivaldi just launched the first-ever native Android Auto internet browser for Polestar vehicles, and it is not as risky as it might seem.
Vivaldi has stated that this is the first-ever browser that is available for the Android Auto Operating System and one of the first adequately featured programs available in quite a while.
It is pretty significant that this is just available for the Polestar 2 EV, with the company wanting to get it to more Polestar vehicles in the near future.
The browser creator made this declaration in a blog post on 22 December 2021.
It makes Vivaldi the very first Android Automotive Operating System browser and one of the first completely functional programs available in a vehicle.
We know what you all might be thinking. Having the option to browse the internet, YouTube, and Reddit while you drive or are trapped in a rush hour does not sound that safe.
Also, relax, you can not do that.
Vivaldi has a few options, settings, and safety highlights set up to make sure that it can deliver a strong internet browser experience in vehicles, complete with browsing, gaming, and that is only the tip of the iceberg, all while staying safe.
How Does the Vivaldi Browser for Android Automotive Operating System Works?
Polestar 2 comes equipped with Android Automotive Operating System, which incorporates the Google Play Store.
Simply click to the Google Play Store on the Polestar 2 and look for the app and install the Vivaldi browser as you would do on your cell phone.
When you install the browser, you can start to relish the functions, features and the privacy that Vivaldi is famous for.
For security purposes, you can use the program while you are parked. Only sound streaming will work if you continue driving and try to stream content.
Features of the Vivaldi Web Browser for Android:
Safety and Security: The Vivaldo browser must be used when parked to guarantee security.
Streaming content will change to sound-only, provided that you switch from parking to driving.
The files cannot be downloaded, and a few other security restrictions might apply.
Privacy: Private browsing data is not put away by the vehicle.
When signed into a Vivaldi account, browsing data might be categorized among different devices signed into a similar account. This data is not shared with Polestar.
Features: Browsing, video streaming, ads blocker, translation devices, notes function, tracking, and encrypted sync functionality are some of the features of the browser.
Now you can easily understand that the internet browser possibly works when the vehicle is parked, and when you begin driving at all, it pretty much becomes unusable.
Vivaldi, as of now, offers a strong internet browser for Android gadgets, one which you can get from the Google Play Store.
Nonetheless, the latest launch has that very same browser being extended to the ever-expanding rundown of vehicles running Android Auto.
The Vivaldi Android Auto internet browser for Polestar 2 is now available in all European, North American, and Asia Pacific regions.
Owners can feel that it is on the Google Play Store inside their vehicle. We hope that the browser might also be available in the forthcoming Polestar 3 SUV coming in 2022, the Polestar 4, and future vehicles.
