TuneIn showcases new partnership with Rivian, joining Mercedes, Volvo, Harman and Tesla
TuneIn, the world’s leading live streaming audio service, announced its recent momentum in the automotive industry, positioning the company as a leader and innovator in bringing premium, live audio to drivers worldwide.
TuneIn has emerged post-pandemic as one of the fastest growing streaming audio companies, bringing live and local radio, news, sports, podcasts to consumers worldwide during all parts of their day – including during their drive. According to data from Edison Research’s Infinite Dial Study, over 70% of cars will be connected by 2023. Therefore, creating innovation while also adhering to legacy standards in this space is paramount for success. TuneIn is helping bring the local radio that drivers have grown to love and expect in the digital age, accessible at their fingertips and in their connected dashboard.
Most recently, TuneIn has integrated with even more leading auto manufacturers, adding Rivian (RIVN) to the roster – putting car owners in control of their listening experience in a new way.
“We are incredibly excited to be adding Rivian to our existing lineup of automotive and connected car technology partners,” said Richard Stern, CEO of TuneIn. “At TuneIn, we’re working with the world’s most innovative automotive companies to reinvent radio and live premium audio entertainment for the connected car. Our deep partnerships in the automotive industry enable drivers to discover and access the best audio content from around the world, directly through their dashboard, via a simple touch or voice command via Alexa.”
