As part of the announcement of this news, Google did not forget to remind that it has already prepared an option for Pixel phones and some Samsung mobile phones unlock vehicles by approaching the lock (via NFC). The list of supported phones and vehicles is to be expanded within a few months (currently the novelty works on selected BMW models) and support for UWB will also be added.
