Picture this: You’re walking towards your car, hands full of groceries, and you don’t have to fumble around for your keys. Instead, you simply approach the vehicle, and it automatically unlocks, thanks to your smartphone. Sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, right? Well, with BMW’s Digital Key Plus, this futuristic vision is now a reality, and it’s not just limited to Apple users anymore.
As of now, Android users in the UAE, Qatar, and Bahrain can also take advantage of this innovative technology, which uses ultra-wideband (UWB) technology for close-range, high-bandwidth communication between the phone and the car. This means that not only can you unlock and lock your BMW, but you can also start the engine without even having to take your phone out of your pocket.
BMW Group worked with partners like Google to establish Digital Key Plus as a global standard for the automotive industry via the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC), ensuring maximum security against relay attacks. And with a future remote software upgrade, even more BMW owners will be able to use Digital Key Plus on their vehicles.
But this is just the beginning. BMW’s goal is to offer digital vehicle access for all customers, regardless of their smartphone’s operating system. And with the recent collaboration with partners like Apple and Google, it won’t be long before we see the full range of comfort access functions available on Android devices.
The future is truly unlocking before our eyes, and BMW’s Digital Key Plus is leading the way.
