In what is either the best, or worst news possible for carpoolers and roadtrippers, the multi-media company Stingray has entered into a global deal with Harman, a connected technologies company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, and CARIAD, Volkswagen Group’s software company, to bring its popular Stingray Karaoke product to selected Audi models around the globe. Stingray Karaoke is becoming an increasingly popular default value-added service in cars globally, being already available on all Tesla and VinFast cars.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Harman, CARIAD and Audi to bring Stingray Karaoke to even more drivers around the world,” said Eric Boyko, President, Co-founder, and CEO of Stingray. “We believe that music is a universal language that brings people together, and we are proud to be able to offer our service to a wider audience while expanding our brand exposure worldwide.”
Stingray Karaoke’s massive 100,000 song catalogue is browsable by title, artist, lyrics or genre, in more than 25 languages, and will be seamlessly integrated into Harman’s new car’s infotainment system, offering an intuitive user experience. With the Passenger App, karaoke fans can sing along and queue up to 100 songs on their connected mobile device when a car is in motion. Stingray Karaoke will be available from July in all newly commercialized Audi A4, A5, Q5, A6, A7, A8, Q8 e-tron, and Audi e-tron GT.
