Google unveils Android Auto for cars

Google unveils Android Auto for cars

These days cars are an integral part of our lives, just like our smartphones. Without smartphones, we are unable to work efficiently and without cars, mobility would have been difficult.  What if both functions are integrated into one? Google envisioned this and pulled the wraps off Android Auto yesterday.

Android Auto is like Google Now for cars. This new system runs on a smartphone device, but mirrors its interface onto a touch screen in the car’s dashboard. The driver will be able to communicate with this system using the voice command or touch.  Based on your driving habits, the Android Auto will display relevant information on the screen. So if you are on your way home  it will automatically show you the shortest or the most easy route to get there. 

If the driver wants to save an appointment or set a reminder, all he has to do is talk to the system. The Android Auto will listen to you and display all the relevant information when needed. Google said it was able to achieve this new application because of various technology and automotive partners; in short, it was the Open Automotive Alliance. The Android Auto will be launched globally before this year ends and around 28 automobile manufacturers like Suzuki, Volvo, and Audi have pledged to integrate this system into their vehicles.  We can expect the Android Auto to come to India as soon as it is launched as India is the world’s fastest growing car and mobile market. So it all makes sense.
