Napster’s resurgence continues, as it goes in-car across Europe with BMW

Napster is to be integrated into cars, thanks to a tie-up with BMW ConnectedDrive which will see the music-streaming service made available in all BMW models from 2011 onwards.

Users connect to BMW ConnectedDrive via their iPhone, which hooks up with the iDrive controller – essentially a central computer system that communicates with the entertainment controls in the car. Alternatively, a snap-in adapter can also be used.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

This follows the news from back in March when Rhapsody – which acquired Napster back in 2012 for its European expansion – announced a similar integration for its US business.

Napster’s music-subscription service is available in 16 countries across Europe, 14 of which were only recently added.
