Skype for Business to be available via BMW's iDrive system

Friday 14 July 2017 | 14:33 CET | News
Microsoft's Skype for Business will become available in BMW cars that use BMW's iDrive system as a result of an expanded agreement between the IT giant and the German car maker, according to TheVerge.com. BMW, which already offers Office 365 services in its cars, will enable owners to take Skype meetings in their cars through the built-in entertainment system. The Skype for Business feature will be available in France, Germany, and the UK initially and will be expanded to other countries later on.
