The Porsche Taycan gets Apple Podcasts and Apple Music Lyrics
The Taycan already features Apple Music functions – now, Porsche and Apple are adding Apple Podcasts and Apple Music’s Time-Synced lyrics
The all-electric Porsche Taycan already features Apple Music functions – now, Porsche and Apple are adding support for Apple Podcasts and Apple Music’s Time-Synced lyrics on the passenger-side display.
From the touchscreen display of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, drivers can stream over 1.5 million shows from Apple Podcasts, the world’s leading podcast platform. This is the first-ever full integration of Apple Podcasts in any vehicle, and it includes the entire catalogue-of-record with programming in 100 languages plus Top Charts for shows and episodes.
Apple Music has also added support for Time-Synced Lyrics on the passenger-side display, making it easy to discover, sing, or just follow along to songs from their library, thousands of curated playlists, and personalised stations.
“The Taycan embodies the pioneering spirit of Porsche – as the first all-electric car from Zuffenhausen. It sets benchmarks within the context of digitalisation and sustainability – and this also applies to the interior,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “The new Apple Music and Apple Podcast offerings expand the emotional driving experience with the Taycan with a seamlessly integrated digital feature for music lovers. There is more to come."
“A great podcast can make any drive more enjoyable,” adds Oliver Schusser, Vice President of Apple Music, Beats and International Content. “With Apple Podcasts, drivers can effortlessly catch up on the latest news, hear incredible stories and enjoy the company of their favorite hosts. And with Apple Music, passengers can easily sing along to their favorite songs with Time-Synced Lyrics.”
Apple Podcasts and Apple Music’s time-synced lyrics are available now to new Taycan customers and will roll out to all owners in January.
