Google has partnered with multiple manufacturers to bring Android Auto hardware to vehicles, with Pioneer being the only manufacturer with dedicated hardware in the market. And to better operate these vehicles with Android Auto compatible hardware, Google has now launched a dedicated Android Auto application on the Play Store, which should let users operate key elements of their car using the application (assuming they have the necessary hardware).
Google mentions that Android Auto hardware will be officially available from Pioneer starting today in the U.S., UK and Australia, so you can check them out if you’re interested in snatching one up for your car. Look for Pioneer’s AVH-4100NEX, AVH-7100NEX, and AVH-8100NEX on popular retail sites like Amazon, Best Buy etc for more details.
Apart from locking and unlocking your car remotely, Android Auto also allows deep integration between your Android phone and the car. To ensure that the users’ eyes are on the road, everything is voice controlled.
You can watch the demo video uploaded by Google below to better understand the functioning of this new app. Do you expect to own Android Auto powered hardware for your vehicles in the near future? Sound off in the comments below.
