The new app will be available in the 2016 editions of Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Discovery Sport. It is available on Google Play Store for android and on App Store for iOS users. The main idea behind launching this app is mainly to avoid driver distraction and integrate the popular features seen on a smartphone with the car’s infotainment system.

Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL), said: “InControlTM Apps will enhance the overall luxury experience of our vehicles and provide technology savvy customers a more convenient option to access their favorite apps. This is an exciting new technology addition to Land Rover vehicles, which have already become popular for their design, performance, craftsmanship and luxury credentials.”

There are a total of nine apps which users can access on the system cloud by connecting their smartphone to the infotainment system using USB. The reason for that is to make sure the device is in charging mode whenever connected. The apps available cater to news feed, navigation, music, Zomato, Glympse etc. The InControl App will come as standard on the above mentioned models without an extra cost. Surprisingly, the present version doesn’t feature any social media apps such as Facebook and Twitter. For more information, please read the press release attached below.
