All information also can also be read out using the text-to-speech function
A free We Score app included in Volkswagen Golf models from 2020 delivers live football updates.
Users can pre-set three clubs and one national team, and follow their favourites in all competitions. Along with live scores – similar to those offered by existing smartphone apps – standings and football news are also displayed in the VW app.
All information also can also be read out using the text-to-speech function.
A live ticker is also available during matches and owners can receive push notifications of their favourite teams’ live results; these are displayed in such a way that they do not distract the driver, VW claims. The live ticker gives real-time match updates and tables can be easily called up to show the latest standings.
The We Score app covers the top two divisions and the main cup competition of the relevant country in which the car was sold.
In Germany the 3. Liga is also available. The Europa League and Champions League are supported, in addition to the European Championships which have been postponed to this summer – VW is a mobility ‘partner’ [aka sponsor] for UEFA EURO 2020.
We Score is accessed via the infotainment system. After a single registration the app can be downloaded – dependent on the infotainment system installed.
Alongside We Score and Amazon Alexa services, passengers can also use the In-Car Shop to subscribe to data plans which allow them to use streaming services or a Wi-Fi hotspot. A We Connect Plus extension is also available and further products are in the pipeline, VW said.
The automaker is an ‘official mobility partner’ of the German Football Association (DFB) and for UEFA national team tournaments including the European Championships due this summer.
VW is also supporting seven teams which have qualified for the tournament: Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Finland, and Russia.
