The highway code is clear when it comes to distraction. You should distance yourself or avoid anything that prevents you from keeping your attention on the road. This is more than enough reason not to use your mobile while driving, something that you should only do when the car is stationary and before driving off. Thanks to features such as Android Auto it is possible to have the most basic functions of the mobile phone on the browser screen and you now have the option to use more cartographic applications.
More different applications in Android Auto
Modern car users already know the benefits of synchronization services with their phone. Google and Apple each have their own and provide an important solution to manage basic cell phone functions while driving. This means you can use it from the touch screen, from the phone itself if your co-pilot is using it, or through voice commands (whichever is the simplest and most convenient).
If we focus on the Android system, we find several functions at your fingertips. Some of them are applications that you use every day, such as WhatsApp, where you can listen to messages and reply to them with your voice, Spotify for listening to music, or Google Maps, the acclaimed mapping application. .
Until now, only two applications from the section of the latter that we mentioned earlier worked in the system: Google Maps itself and Waze. Because of this, many others have been omitted, something the Mountain View firm will appear to be resolving shortly.
And it is that the small campus will be joined by more applications such as Sygic, T, A Better Route Planner or AmiGO and many others, depending on what the company itself has on its blog.
A beta program for developers
The above image is just a small example of how developers work with Android Auto. The ones from Mountain View have activated a new version so that everyone can start their tests and have their applications on the car screen. This increases the range and possibilities of the system with applications that focus their possibilities on offering the best parking spaces or charging points, among other things.
