Google evolves Android Auto to an application that can be used in any car to concentrate on what matters on the road
Google launched Android Auto in 2014, an adapted version of Android especially designed to be installed on the screens of the cars. Some auto manufacturers joined this project by giving the option of choosing Android Auto or Apple Car, its most direct competition. Two years later, Android Auto evolves to all Android phones.
It is not that Android Auto, the version absorbed in the dashboards of the cars is a failure, but requires that you purchase a system or a new car. With this update, Google ensures that millions of phones will become an information platform for drivers more appropriate.
The application, which is available for free on Google Play, allows your phone to display the necessary information for conducting a simple way and with great elements to not turn very much your look from which it is important, the highway.
The application provides information of Google Maps navigation, music controls, weather information or voice assistant to read the messages that come to you. If they call you by phone, the display clearly shows who he is.
It even has the option to launch automatically each time you connect bluetooth to your car. You only need to buy one of these adapters to hold it close to your vision and control it with the voice thanks to “OK Google”.
Remember that at the wheel, all your attention should be on the road. The fewer distractions you have, the better. Android Auto reduces the noise level generated by your mobile phone while driving, but it is not an excuse to lose concentration.
