Many of the novelties that accompany Android 12 are yet to be discovered, but some have already been publicized, such as the possibility of using the mobile as a car key.
At the Google I / O event held yesterday, it was possible to see the first images of Android 12 and discover some of the news that will accompany this new version of the mobile operating system. One of them is not surprising as it is more than expected, but it sure is very appreciated by the users.
As Google announced yesterday, with some Samsung Galaxy and Pixel mobiles it will be possible to open, close and start vehicles in the near future. Already there is a company that will test this technology in 2021, BMW, although many others will soon be added.
The first thing to note is that BMW announced last year that their cars could be opened with iPhones, so it is not a great novelty, but a logical step by Google not to be left behindEven more so when the NFC is increasingly integrated and is so useful in these circumstances.
One of the interesting options, which are also on iOS, will be the be able to share keys with other people via mobile. Ending the physical object itself, or at least replacing it, will multiply the number of users who can use the vehicles without having to reach out to pick up the copy, or one of the two, that are usually owned.
In addition, with regard to connectivity with vehicles, Google also reported yesterday that the number of vehicles that allow Android Auto to connect has increased wirelessly, without the need for cables, as reported in Mashable. Among the brands cited are Honda, Ford and General Motos. To all this we must also add everything related to Android Automotive.
As you can see, Google has announced a series of novelties that are not surprising, but that are the logical step to advance in different areas and keep up with the demands of the industry and users. Now it remains to be seen how they will be implemented in vehicles and if they will triumph among drivers.
