Radioplayer and Cariad Extend Partnership for Hybrid Radio
The new agreement extends the partnership Radioplayer has had with Audi since 2017. Radioplayer and CARIAD will provide customers of Volkswagen Group brands with high quality radio experience by seamlessly switching between DAB+, FM, and internet streaming. Radioplayer provides official broadcaster data (e.g. station logos, descriptions, streams) from the Worldwide Radioplayer API (WRAPI). This data is already powering the hybrid radios in over 2 million cars across Europe’s and Canada’s roads from brands including Audi, VW, Porsche and Lamborghini. In addition, Radioplayer will also be collaborating with CARIAD on the development of the future radio experience in connected cars.
