After Apple introduce the Apple CarPlay multimedia system at the beginning of this year, Google unveiled today its response: the Android Auto.
It is a system that works with your Android smartphones and, acording to Android boss, is combining the best of both worlds. You get the connected apps and services on your smartphone with the physical controls that were optimized for driving in your car."
As in your car you have to stay focus to the road, Google simplified the interface for easier use. Everything is bigger for easier touch on the screen. The new Adroid Auto comes with voice commands that can give access to Google Maps text messages and music just saying the right words.
The Android Auto will be permanently connected to you phone, memoring also you reminders, contacts and other notes. The first use of Android Auto will be introduced later this year. Automakers like Audi, General Motors, Honda and Hyundai showed their interest already.
