Frankfurt, Germany, 27 February 2024: Genesis has partnered with Amazon to integrate the brand’s music streaming platform – Amazon Music – across the Genesis range1, allowing customers2 an additional way to enjoy in-car listening.

The collaboration marks the first time a streaming service has been made compatible with Genesis Connected Services (GCS), an application that hosts a range of on-board services such as live traffic information, dynamic charging stations, potential parking availability, online voice recognition and monitoring and controlling features of the car including running diagnostic tests, locking and unlocking of vehicles and displaying battery level3.

The process of setting up Amazon Music is simple, only requiring a registered user profile for Genesis Connected Services, the latest GCS update and an Amazon Music account. If all latest updates for Genesis Connected Services have been installed, which occur automatically via Genesis’ convenient Over-the-Air software update service, the Amazon Music App will appear on the main infotainment screen. 

The app integrates seamlessly with the Genesis Audio Video Navigation. This enhances usability for easy-to-use app navigation whilst on the move, in addition to frequent synchronisation to ensure customers can access the most up-to-date music, audiobooks and podcasts complete with their respective artwork. Amazon Music offers the highest levels of customisation, where users can create playlists from a catalogue of 100 million songs, listen to music stations, as well as receive personalised recommendations based on listening habits. 

To activate Amazon Music, customers simply open the GCS App, click through to Personal Services followed by Music Streaming Service, then tap the “Add” button. From there, it will be possible to login to an existing Amazon account or create a new account. The user will then receive an SMS or email verification, press the “Allow” button and the activation service will be complete.

Lawrence Hamilton, Managing Director at Genesis Motor Europe, commented: “The successful launch of Amazon Music as the first streaming platform to become available on Genesis cars marks an important step in a wider development plan for integrating future streaming services. Genesis is committed to applying the latest technology to offer great new product features and software updates that enhance the ownership experience for our customers.”

Genesis has proven its commitment to delivering unparalleled convenience, security, and personalisation through its pioneering technology. In 2023, Genesis debuted the world’s first application of facial recognition technology in the automotive industry – Face Connect – a feature that allows for keyless access to the car through facial recognition. Within the same year the brand launched Plug & Charge, a hassle-free charging program, as well as a collaboration with Smartphone companies to offer wider functionality of Digital Key 2 across iOS and Android phone users, an innovative feature that allows digital access to Genesis cars.
