Microsoft has announced that it will showcase Azure along with the combined power of software for connected cars. That was quite disappointing as that was not what everyone was expecting from from Microsoft during CES 2017. Well, don’t worry, because some more information regarding the plans for Cortana integration in BMW connected cars has surfaced.

According to some reports out of CES 2017, BMW will showcase digital services that will allow drivers of future automated vehicles to optimize the way they plan their daily lives. The prototype is based on the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the new services are part of the “BMW Connected” which has ben available in the US since March 2016 and in Europe since August 2016.

Thanks to Microsoft’s Cortana and BMW Connected, you will be able to set a reminder en-route of an upcoming appointment and even add a location for that specific appointment. At the same time, you can find a restaurant or a hotel nearby and reserve a table for an easier process.

You should know that many other services could be integrated into BMW Connect in the future such as Amazon Prime Video or Prime Now. Unfortunately, it is not yet clear how exactly Cortana will be integrated into BMW Connected as it can be either by smartphone or with an IoT device.

However, more details about this will most likely surface sometime in the near future. There are also rumors which say that Cortana’s integration into cars might be revealed later at CES 2017 during Nissan’s keynote. This will surely be a good addition to cars as you will be able to perform many commands by using your voice without getting distracted while driving.
