Let’s say you have planned to go somewhere—the mall, coffee shop, a friend’s house, whatever. It’s something you have been looking forward to for a very long time. You trudge through the snow out to Lincoln MKC only to realize that you forgot to remotely start your car! Now you’ve got to scrape all of the ice of your windshield, making you late and putting you in a foul mood for the rest of the evening.
Not anymore. Not if you own a Lincoln automobile and an Android smartphone. That’s because the Lincoln Motor Company is “the first automotive brand to launch an available seamless integration with Now cards in the Google app,” according to a press release from the automaker. This is achieved by the way of the free MyLincoln Mobile app.
If you’re wondering what Now cards are, Google says that they are are “short snippets of useful information” that appear “when you’re most likely to need them” and when “they’re relevant, based on things like the time and your location.”
Now, if you’ve scheduled your outing in your Google calendar, your Lincoln automobile will be nice and warm.
By recently partnering with Google, Lincoln was able to develop a one-of-a-kind seamless app experience to add to the luxury experience of owning a Lincoln. The new MyLincoln Mobile app was developed to increase connectivity between drivers and their cars.
The new app is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, allowing drivers to schedule remote starts, lock, unlock, and locate their vehicle, all with the push of a button. The seamless integration also means that owners can sync their cars with their calendars to have their car ready to go when they need it, said Lincoln.
“Delivering unique experiences for the luxury client throughout ownership is fundamental to Lincoln,” said Matt VanDyke, Director at Global Lincoln. “By innovating with leading tech companies, we have an opportunity to personalize the ongoing interaction between the customer and the vehicle.”
The new MyLincoln Mobile app will also allow users to access Google, providing them with information on traffic, weather, and even things like sports scores. No more fumbling around with your phone; this new system lets users have hands-free information anytime they want. Plus, with the new remote system, drivers can access their cars from nearly anywhere.
