How Android Auto Works

Android Auto is designed to be a safer way to operate your Android phone in your vehicle. Android Auto accomplishes this by having familiar, larger touchscreen icons, Google voice commands, and an easy to use interface.

 

GPS Navigation

From voice-guided directions to live traffic updates, Android Auto brings seamless integration of Google Maps from your wireless phone onto your car stereo. Press and hold the voice command button or simply say “Ok Google” and give the command. Android Auto with Google Maps will take you to your requested location and provide the estimated time of arrival, traffic updates and more!

Phone Calls and Messaging

With Android Auto, you can send or receive text messages and make phone calls completely hands-free. Select the notification, and Android Auto will read incoming text messages to you. Android Auto will also dictate outgoing Messages. Press the microphone icon or say “OK Google,” tell the system if you would like to reply or send a new message and let Google know what you would like to say. With Android Auto, you no longer need to take your eyes off the road to stay connected with family and friends.

Use Your Favorite Apps

In addition to features like Google Maps, Messaging, phone calls and Google Play Music, Android Auto offers a broad range of 3rd Party apps. Do you prefer Waze to Google Maps? Just download it from the Google Play store. Do you prefer Hangouts, WhatsApp, Skype or Spotify to the native phone call, messaging or music applications? Great! Android Auto is an excellent option for people who prefer a larger variety of applications.

How to Get Android Auto in Your Vehicle

Many car manufacturers now offer Android Auto as an option, which is great if you’re in the market for a new vehicle; but fortunately for everyone else, there are other options. Just about every aftermarket stereo manufacturer now makes head units with Android Auto built-in. Aftermarket stereos offer many additional options like backup cameras, satellite radio, and high voltage pre-outs that allow you to expand your car audio system.
