Lynk & Co launches in-car meeting app with access to Microsoft Teams

27 July, 2022 – Say hello to the exclusive in-car meeting app with support for joining Microsoft Teams audio conferencing. Isn’t she a beauty? And while you’re at it: say goodbye to hassling with your phone while in the car.

Lynk & Co isn’t your regular car brand. We think we’ve made that clear already. Our business idea isn’t based on selling more and more cars, rather it’s to make our customers’ lives as hassle-free as possible. Our new meeting app, available in all our 01’s from now is just another step on that journey.

The new meeting app makes it possible for you to attend all your Microsoft Teams meetings, be it that big business conference or the annual beekeeping get-together, on the go. Simple, easy and in a secure way.

Alain Visser, CEO Lynk & Co., says “We are very pleased to be able to provide this feature for our members. Working with Microsoft has been such a rewarding experience and once again it emphasises Lynk & Co as a supplier not of cars but radically simple mobility – on the forefront of technology.

Lynk & Co’s internal development team built this new app using Microsoft Azure Communication Services, which offers interoperability with Microsoft Teams, one of the most widely-used collaboration and communication solutions in the world. The purpose of the feature is, as always with Lynk & Co, to use modern technology to simplify our users’ lives and help them pursue their passions.

Bob Serr, vice president of Azure Communication Services at Microsoft, says “Microsoft Teams is built to help people collaborate and stay connected to colleagues, friends and family. It is exciting to see how Lynk & Co are using Microsoft Azure Communication Services to extend Teams experiences and create truly powerful, forward-looking mobile experiences for their customers.  

The meeting app is the 14th app available in the Lynk & Co 01. Other in-car apps include Spotify, Radioline, Audiobooks, Media Player, App Store, Car Sharing, Car Status, Car Guide, Journey Cam, Scoreyteller, Calendar, Inbox and Co:lab.
