About Android Auto
Android Auto is a smartphone projection standard developed by Google to allow mobile devices running the latest Android OS to be operated in automobiles through the dashboard’s head unit.
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, NBA Premium Pass, NFL Game Pass Spotify, Songza, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn.
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.
