With the partnership between Xiaomi and BMW, there will no longer be a need for car keys! After Apple announced the car key feature in 2020, news has emerged recently that this feature will be expanded. Meanwhile, the company’s competitors in the Android world have also taken action for their own car key applications. Xiaomi has announced that they have started working with BMW for a digital car key application.
Xiaomi unveils details about its digital car key app at MWC
At the MWC event held in Barcelona, the company introduced the Xiaomi 13 series and shared the first details about the car key feature. Xiaomi stated during the event that they will make the digital car key application available for certain BMW models starting from the second quarter of this year.
Digital keys that are used through smartphones can be used not only to open and close car doors but also to start certain models. This application stands out as a very useful way, especially for entrusting your car to someone else.
With newly developed digital keys, you do not have to give the physical key of the car. Since digital keys can be shared with the desired person, there is no need for people to meet. Thus, users do not have to carry their car keys with them. On the other hand, problems such as losing the keys of the cars are also eliminated.
We can also look at the new digital key applications from another perspective. The new digital car keys can be considered as the first step for vehicle sharing systems, which are expected to expand in the coming years.
Thus, users will be able to receive their cars from any desired location. It seems that digital car key applications will reach a wider usage in the near future.
