If you've ever wanted to be more productive on your daily commute, Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz are working together to make that happen. IFA 2016 in Berlin, it was revealed that the two companies are working together on what they call an "In Car Office," which is set to debut in Mercedes vehicles in 2017.
As reported by TechCrunch, the In Car Office will integrate with Microsoft Exchange to bring information from your work calendar, contacts and much more to your car:
Mercedes' In Car Office features will do things like pre-populate the navigation system with destination from your Exchange calendar, and also provide notifications offering to make calls using the in-car voice call system when you have upcoming meetings marked on your calendar.
What Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz are cooking up certainly sounds interesting, and it could prove to be handy for those frequently zipping between meetings. As for when we'll see this arrive, all that was revealed is that the feature will launch in Mercedes vehicles in the first half of 2017.
