Soon the applications available on the screen of your car will multiply thanks to the latest Google movement.
At the conference that Google held yesterday, numerous news about the company could be seen on various topics, although, as expected, it was especially interesting for developers. However, some of the news that will reach users in the near future, such as everything that has to do with Android Automotive.
Android Automotive it’s a Linux-based operating system which can already be used in some vehicles. Instead of being an application to connect mobile and vehicle, like Android Auto, it is independent and open source for native vehicle manufacturers to use. And this seems to have opened a very attractive path for the entire sector.
As reported TechCrunch, up to 10 vehicles of Volvo, Renault, General Motors and Polestar will use Android Automotive with Google services before the end of 2021. In addition, more brands are expected to announce their implementation soon and there are many developers working on applications for this operating system.
Having your hands free to create applications that are as responsive and useful as possible is expected to help you developers of all kinds and vehicle manufacturers work to expand the use of this system in an important way and without the need for Google to make great efforts.
Of course, Google has also created compatibility between Android OS and Android Auto to continue maintaining the hegemony within the vehicles and that it is almost an indisputable decision to use the company’s systems and applications.
Two years after Android Automotive was launched and some time after it reached its first vehicle, Polestar 2, this operating system is one of Google’s most interesting bets to impose itself in a market that does not stop advancing. The digitization of cars is unstoppable and Android Auto does not seem to be enough for the challenges that lie ahead, so we will see how Android Automotive progresses.
