Samsung launches Drive Link App for Galaxy S3

Samsung had talked about Drive Link for the Galaxy S3 earlier this year during the unveiling of TouchWiz Nature UX. Well this week they have launched the in-car App and we are impressed.

This App allows users to listen to music, access GPS navigation, and make hands-free calls while driving. Drive Link can also connect to a car’s infotainment system through MirrorLink, and then uses text-to-speech technology to read aloud any incoming texts, emails, or social media updates (just make sure you want people to here these).

Samsung notes that Drive Link’s large icons and simplified menu system make it ideal for safe in-car operation, adding that the app meets the safety regulations established by the Japanese Automotive Manufacturers Association.

Drive Link is available today from Samsung Apps in 21 countries across Europe, including France, Germany, Russia, and the UK. For now, the app is launching exclusively on the Galaxy S III, though it will be available on other handsets running Android 4.0 “in the near future.”

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
