In addition, there will be a special BMW i5 with a unique gaming aesthetic produced by the firm’s design staff to commemorate the gaming partnership .
Racing, sports, trivia, music quiz, simulation, strategy, jump-and-run, and puzzle games are all accessible on AirConsole. New games will be added throughout the next few months.
According to BMW, all you have to do is scan a QR code on the central display to link your smartphone to the car’s iDrive 8.5 infotainment system. The smartphone will serve as a game controller, and all car occupants will be able to play when the vehicle is stationary.
