Joining a conference call from your car will soon be easier than ever — if you drive a Volvo 90 Series, that is. Volvo has announced that it's bringing Skype for Business to its new 90 Series vehicles (XC90, S90, V90), making Skype calls and viewing your scheduled meetings just a tap away on the in-dash screen.
Volvo's partnership with Microsoft also includes the exploration of using Cortana, Microsoft's intelligent personal assistant, with the express intention of adding seamless voice recognition and contextual insights to support peoples' daily lives by actively predicting their needs.
Obviously, Cortana integration may be a ways off, but Skype for Business should make for a compelling addition if you find yourself phoning into conference calls on the road. This is just Microsoft's latest productivity-focused collaboration with a car maker, with the tech giant having previously teamed up with Mercedes-Benz on an "in-car office" solution that helps users navigate to meetings and take calls on the road.
