Vivaldic Technologies presented this Wednesday (22) the first browser developed exclusively for Android Automotive, a version of Google’s operating system aimed at cars. The novelty offers an exclusive and customizable experience for drivers and passengers.
According to the developer Vivaldic for Android Automotive basically brings the same functions as in a browser for mobile devices. Guided browsing, website access, online shopping, and streaming services are some of the features available, as well as translation tools and a private window.
The browser also has a built-in adblocker, an extension that allows you to annotate and sync with the Vivaldic account, making it possible to transfer encrypted data between devices, preventing access by third parties. The company also states that the software does not store any information when used anonymously.
With security as one of the top priorities, the browser for Android Automotive only works with a parked car, as explained by Vivaldi. For example, if the vehicle starts moving and the browser plays a video on YouTube, streaming will only continue if the audio is activated while the car is in motion.
