Mercedes E-Class Gets Selfie Camera Ready For WEBEX Meeting

The all new E-Class comes with third-party apps and video camera

The software experts at Mercedes-Benz have developed a new compatibility layer that allows the installation of third-party apps.

This E-Class is equipped with the optional front passenger screen and this MBUX Superscreen extends the central display. Visually detached from this is the high-resolution driver display in the driver’s field of vision.

The following apps are available on the central display on the launch of the E-Class: the entertainment platform “TikTok”, the game “Angry Birds”, the collaborative application “Webex” and the office application “Zoom”, as well as the browser “Vivaldi”.


In addition, the ZYNC entertainment portal offers video streaming, on-demand content, interactive experiences, local video programmes, sports, news, games and much more on the central and passenger displays, via one user interface.

Interestingly, another new feature is a selfie and video camera (part of the optional MBUX Superscreen) on top of the dashboard.

When the vehicle is stationary, the driver can participate in online video conferences via e.g. “Webex”, and take personal photos and videos.

More operating convenience is also available with MBUX. With the “Just Talk” function, the intelligent voice control can now be activated without the keyword “Hey Mercedes“. When the function is activated, a red microphone symbol appears in the display. This indicates that the vehicle is ready and waiting for commands.


Impressive, immersive entertainment experience

Music, games and streaming content can be experienced with almost all the senses in the E-Class. Thanks to digital innovations in the interior, the E-Class is now more intelligent, achieving a new dimension of personalisation and interaction. At the same time, the electronic architecture is more software-driven and less hardware-driven.

The computing functions of previously separate domains take place in a single processor. Screens and the MBUX infotainment system thus share a new, very powerful central onboard computer. This form of networking improves the performance and speed of the data streams.

The Entertainment package (MBUX Entertainment Plus) will be available for the new E-Class. It includes Mercedes me connect services and a data package from a third-party provider.

Depending on the market, a communication module with 5G as the transmission technology is used.
