Android Auto

android auto, android auto apps
Android Auto is a smartphone projection standard developed by Google to allow mobile devices running the Android operating system version 50 "Lollipop" and later to be operated in automobiles through the dashboard's head unit Android Auto was announced on June 25, 2014, at Google I/O 2014 The Android Auto mobile app was released on March 19, 2015

The standard offers drivers control over GPS mapping/navigation, music playback, SMS, telephony, and web search; both touchscreen and button-controlled head unit displays will be supported, although hands-free operation through voice commands is emphasized to ensure safe driving Compatible apps include Google Maps, Google Play Music, MLB at Bat, Spotify, Songza, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, Radioplayer, and TuneIn

While the official Android Auto website does list most car manufacturers as supporting Android Auto, many vehicles which are released for the 2015 and 2016 model years do not officially support it just yet

Android Auto is part of the Open Automotive Alliance, which was announced on January 6, 2014, and is a joint effort with 28 automobile manufacturers and mobile tech supplier Nvidia In May 2015, Hyundai became the first manufacturer to offer Android Auto, making it available first in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata

The aim of Android Auto is to extend the functionality of an Android mobile device in an automobile to the dashboard's head unit In order to use the system, users must be running Lollipop on their mobile device and must own a vehicle supporting Android Auto The driver's Android device connects to the vehicle via USB cable Rather than running its own operating system, the head unit will serve as an external display for the Android device, which runs all of the software, by presenting a car-specific user interface built into Lollipop

Several functions are supported:

  • GPS mapping/navigation
  • Music control
  • Telephony
  • SMS composition and playback
  • Web search
