Google has made the official announcement that the Android Auto system is a go. Consumers in the United States, Australia and the UK are able to access the technology now. Does this mean Google intends to continue biting from the big Apple? You betcha!
A little healthy competition is always a good thing when it comes to services provided because it keeps the technologies interesting and the costs somewhat down. The new Google Android offerings have stolen a percentage of dedicated Apple lovers already, and they seem to be digging in for ways to attract even more. The Google Android Auto interface works with Android Lollipop 5.0+ smartphones and Pioneer head units, for the moment. Because that is but a small slice of the market, it seems that will expand based on user interaction figures as they begin to emerge. To begin, just download the Android Auto companion app from the Play Store.
