Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2024: TikTok, games and Zoom software to be available in new Mercedes infotainment


Mercedes-Benz is bringing more intelligent software and a new MBUX superscreen for its next E-Class

Mercedes-Benz has officially revealed images of its next-generation E-Class interior, with the luxury model set to become more intelligent and tech-laden than before. 

The next-generation E-Class infotainment has been given a significant overhaul, with the MBUX system now more powerful to allow it to run third-party applications. 

With the optional entertainment plus package, owners will be able to run applications such as TikTok, Angry Birds, Zoom and a web browser called Vivaldi.

As part of the optional MBUX Superscreen, a selfie and video camera will be equipped on the vehicle. This could come in handy when doing conference calls when stationary, says Mercedes-Benz.

Optional ambient lighting and sound visualisation can also be added to the new E-Class, which means that the beat of the music can be transformed into colour through the use of the ambient lighting strips. 

Mercedes-Benz has said that the next E-Class is scheduled to arrive in European dealerships around the middle of 2023, however Australian deliveries will likely be pushed out to at least 2024.

How does the Superscreen compare to the Hyperscreen?

The Superscreen option for the new E-Class is not the same as the Hyperscreen that first debuted on the Mercedes-Benz EQS

The key element with the Hyperscreen is that most of the controls are accessed via the touchscreen, rather than physical buttons.

The optional E-Class Superscreen, in comparison, might look similar to the Hyperscreen in terms of screen layout, but it features physical buttons in a control bar for settings including drive mode, parking cameras, power button, hazard lights, sound system mute function and volume control.
