With Android Auto going official yesterday, it was only a matter of time before car manufacturers officially announced support. Google’s Open Automotive Alliance was an indication of this. We saw Audi announcing support for Android Auto earlier and now Volvo has joined the list with its first car, the XC90, featuring Android Wear expected to be shown off in October. The car will officially land in the markets by 2015.
Much like Apple’s CarPlay system, Android Auto allows users to hook up their phones with the car and control it based on voice. The power of Google Now will give Android Auto a significant edge over the competition. We can expect other car manufacturers to join the Android Auto bandwagon in the coming months although vehicles aren’t expected to land in the markets until early 2015. But we can get a closer glimpse of how things work with Android Auto when Volvo and Audi show off their new vehicles later in the year.
