I wonder how this is different from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Looks like Sync 3 will support all three then?

It appears to be vehicle and phone platform independent so spotify would work on an iphone in a Ford and an android in a Toyota.

 

Whereas carplay and android auto are proprietary to their phone platforms.
