The partnership will allow Ola having easy access to Microsoft’s cloud computing service to power the company’s existing car platform.

The partnership will also benefit Ola Play riders as they would be able to use Microsoft’s AI, IoT, and productivity tools to enhance the in-car experience. Announcing the joint partnership, Bhavish Aggarwal, co-founder and CEO of Ola said:

“Globally, the auto industry is experiencing a seismic, shift as the definition of automobiles is increasingly changing from gas-powered vehicles to technology-packed, connected devices. With Ola Play, we have already set the tone for connected vehicles in India; together with Microsoft, we can make the new platform available to a larger, global audience and unlock futuristic experiences for customers worldwide.”

The partnership will give Ola Play users full access to Microsoft’s productivity tools like Office 365, Skype for Business and voice-assisted controls. The new car platform that they will build together will turn the car into an intelligent vehicle. The platform will have in-built abilities to assess the fuel efficiency, help in smarter navigation and can also accurately predict breakdowns.
