Google Automotive: All users of a car about four years old can have the Android Auto feature in the browser. This helps to have all the comforts of the Android system without having to look at the phone all the time. But with the arrival of Google Automotive and the integrated YouTube app.
What is Google Automotive?
In essence, Google Automotive is the heir to Android Auto. However, it has a very important difference that you as a user should take into account when buying a car in the coming years. It turns out that this new version is integrated into the car’s on-board computer, eliminating the need to use an Android phone to have some features in the car.
In fact, it will have a design very similar to version 12 of Android, so it will have some details that will instantly remind you of the mobile system. On the other hand, it is very likely that each brand will have its own personalization layer, as is also the case in the mobile phone segment, although here it will be dedicated to certain features of the car.
What’s New at CES 2022
Google didn’t want to miss this opportunity to bring more news Google Automotive. The first has to do with the arrival of the YouTube application, which plays content directly on the screen. This will help the reproduction of multimedia content, although we recommend that you only play music so as not to be distracted from the road.
The other news has to do with your virtual assistant. And is that thanks to Google Assistant you can request that various functions of your car activate themselves, such as activating the heating or air conditioning, opening or closing the car and even have information about the status of the car battery. Its integration will become more complete in the automotive sector over the years, but it seems clear that only the next Volvo will be the first to include this feature in their option package.
