Vivaldi is one of the first browsers on the Android Automotive OS and has made its entry to the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric and All-New Austral models and will arrive at all future cars from the brand.
The collaboration of Vivaldi and Renault brings a home-like feel and a professional workspace experience for the drivers even behind the wheel. With the addition of the Vivaldi browser on its infotainment system, the car brand brings new possibilities.
The drivers can install the Vivaldi browser on their Renault electric car’s infotainment system using the OpenR Link system. Moreover, both companies have considered the safety of the driver, and the browser only works while the car’s parked. It is not the first time, as Vivaldi has made its debut on the Polestar 2 electric car that launched in December 2021.
Turn your Renault Electric into a Work Space with Vivaldi Browser
The Renault and Vivaldi collaboration has paved a new way for drivers to explore a unique browsing experience.
Thanks to the inbuilt OpenR infotainment system from the French manufacturer, the Renault electric owners provide excellent accessibility and a user-friendly interface. Besides, the infotainment system with its customizable interface is not much different from an Android smartphone or tablet.
The future of browsing in cars is exciting. We are thrilled to bring Vivaldi in the new Renault Megane E-Tech Electric, the All-Austral and in all future cars with OpenR Link system. This is a powerful example of how we want to give a smart browser to the automobility sector, providing the driver and passengers with a completely new in-car-connected browsing experience,— Vivaldi CEO, Jon von Tetzchner.
The inclusion of a touch screen that mimics the tablet or an Android smartphone and voice command support gives a distinct way for users to navigate through the UI. The Vivaldi browser has always given the privacy of users a top priority.
The browser gives the users the ability to experience powerful features, such as a built-in ad blocker, tracking protection, a privacy-friendly translation tool, tabbed browsing, notes function, and encrypted sync functionality.
Best Use Cases of Vivaldi for Renault Drivers That Spend a Lot of Time in the Car
The arrival of the Vivaldi browser on the OpenR Link infotainment system helps users who make most of their work from browsers. The infotainment system can become a command center where users can complete their work with Vivaldi’s extended functionality features.
