Internet Radio

Internet radio streams music that is stored on a server to an Internet-connected vehicle by using embedded wireless networking technologies (such as a connected “infotainment” head unit) or via a wireless consumer device that is connected to the vehicle (such as a user’s smartphone). In both cases, music is accessed online, without storing any music files in the car’s head unit or consumer device. In some instances, the streaming service provider allows for caching tracks to listen to when the user is in offline mode.
