What is Android Auto System
Google Launches Android Auto System In India.
Google has recently announced that its Android Auto system will now be available in India along with 18 other countries.
The other countries include Brazil, India, Chile, Austria, Colombia, Argentina, Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Russia, Panama, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Peru, Switzerland and Uruguay.
Android Auto provides information from various apps including Google Maps, Google Play Music, access to phone calls, emails, text messages, etc. and organises them into simple cards to make it easy for the user.
But, the user should have an Android Auto compatible vehicle or a third party car stereo along with the Android Auto app running on Android Lollipop. So, once you connect your phone to car, Android Auto will display all the info on your car.
This helps the user to get less distracted and use all the apps from the car display.
Currently, it is compatible with Audi, Chevrolet, Honda, Hyundai, Mahindra and Skoda.
