Android Automotive: update makes it even more usable

Have you ever heard of Android Automotive? That system is fully integrated in a car, so you can do much more with it than the simpler Android Auto. However, the latter is a lot more popular, can be used in many more cars and is a lot cheaper. That aside has Google lifted a corner of the veil about an interesting Android Automotive update.

At CES 2022, the search giant announced that YouTube will be making its way into the system. Of course you can’t watch videos while driving, but you can when you’re parked. Other well-known apps that are also coming to the platform include Sygic and Flitsmeister. This way you no longer necessarily have to navigate with Google’s own software.

Various other apps to charge or park your electric car are also coming to Android Automotive. The roll-out of this will be phased and will first take place for various cars from Volvo’s fleet.

Control more with your voice

It will also soon be possible for users to control even more functions by voice. This way you can adjust almost any setting with a voice command while driving. You can also use Google Assistant on other devices in combination with Android Automotive.

For example, you can already have the car heated up via a smart speaker, television or your smartphone thanks to a voice command. Locking the car, opening it or checking the battery status is also possible from a distance. Just like the roll-out of various new applications, this roll-out also takes place in different phases.
