GM announced a new vehicle services definition called “uServices” for the automotive software developer community. In essence, uServices is meant to serve as GM’s own API for other software developers to build apps that can work across multiple lineups of vehicles.
I see this “platform” lasting maybe 5 years. And no competitor using it. As a developer I can’t imagine putting forth any effort for apps. Is GM gonna pay for 3rd party apps? Who wants an app subscription that only works in the car and not on my phone?
