Google Play Services update enables Android Auto support for the Samsung Galaxy S6

Android Auto

Google is now sending out an update to the Play Services application, which carries Android Auto support for devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6. As we all know, third party Android Auto head units are slowly making their way to the markets courtesy of manufacturers like Pioneer.

Head units are available for purchase in the U.S., UK and some other parts of the world and it’s only natural that Google wants the latest Samsung flagship to support these units.

You will probably not find any other changes with Play Services as Android Auto support will be enabled under the hood. With Android Auto, you can control Maps, Music and several other apps from your Android devices on the car, thus bringing Android to your automobile. We must point out that Android Auto is only compatible with Android 5.0+ running devices.

While there are third party head units that can be purchased for your car, several car manufacturers in the future will build support for Android Auto by default, which is welcome news.
