Audi will let drivers read a newspaper and drive a car at the same time

In many countries around the world, it is illegal to drive a car and talk on a hand-held mobile phone. Now Audi is experimenting with newspapers directly in the car.

Assistant systems in new cars don't just keep lanes and decode traffic signs. Soon they also read newspapers.

At least in Audi's future cars. A new collaboration with the German company Articly means that all kinds of newspaper news find their way into Audi's cars.

This is stated by Articly in a press release .

Specifically, the newspaper app is available to all Audi owners in a car that is from model year 2024 or newer. However, it requires that the car has the latest software from Audi.

The app can so far be used for free. But it will stop in the middle of 2024 – i.e. already this year – after that you will have to pay if the car is to read news on the move.

However, there is the rule that the driver must keep both hands on the steering wheel and look straight ahead at the road. Otherwise, the system simply refuses to work.

The news app is just one of many third-party programs that Audi already has and will equip its cars with in the future.

In March 2023, the brand launched a number of streaming services – i.a. Swedish Spotify – into the infotainment system on several selected models. Among other things. A3, A4/A5, A6 and Q8.

Audi is far from the only one with a sea of entertainment options in new cars. However, it is very different how the car brands approach the opportunities.

Also when it comes to their own options to control what drivers can and, above all, cannot. BMW, for example, received many verbal beatings for taking payment for heated seats.

In fact, the idea was so poorly received that the Germans ended up regretting the decision. Nobody would pay for it. Read more about it here .
