Stingray has announced a global deal with audio company Harman and CARIAD, Volkswagen Group’s software company, to bring its Stingray Karaoke product to select Audi models around the globe.
Stingray Karaoke is a default value-added service in cars globally, already available on all Tesla and VinFast cars. The 100,000-song catalog is browsable by title, artist, lyrics, or genre in more than 25 languages. It 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. You can also tailor the experience further by skipping, rewinding, and fast-forwarding songs, toggling background videos on or off, and singing along with or without lead vocals. New songs are added monthly along with ready-to-sing party mixes, ideal for road trips.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Harman, CARIAD, and Audi to bring Stingray Karaoke to even more drivers around the world,” says 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 will be available starting in July in all newly commercialized Audi A4, A5, Q5, A6, A7, A8, Q8 e-tron, and Audi e-tron GT. These Audi models will be fitted with the store from the factory throughout the European market as well as Canada and the U.S. The functionality will be expanded to additional models in 2023.
