Google is bringing Android to the car with Android Auto

Yes you heard that right, Google is finally bringing Android to cars with its latest offering Android Auto. Google is targeting Apple’s CarPlay but with a twist. Android Auto is basically a voice-enabled software experience for the drivers.

Searching through endless grid of icons is a complete headache for a driver and Google is making it easier for you to just speak commands to Android Auto and gets things done in no time. Android Auto is contextually aware and knows where you are in the car, it also features Google Now cards and will automatically show information regarding your driving habits which are already known to Google and Google Now. This means it will offer you a route to your home along with estimated travel time when you are about to leave your office.

Android Auto runs on your android powered phone and mirrors its interface to touch screen of your vehicle’s dashboard. Once connected the user can then interact through touch screen or the voice commands. Additionally users will be able to reply to text messages and emails by using Google’s voice input and text-to-speech features.

Talking about the Google maps, they are being updated for the Android Auto and now the users will be able to ask about the nearest coffee shop and it will display the directions to the nearest coffee shop and that too hands free!

Google has unveiled the Android Auto SDK to the developers and 25 car manufacturers have already promised their support for the Android Auto including big names like Honda, Hyundai, Bentley and Audi.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
