Millions of cars will start having Android powered infotainment systems in the future thanks to a major Android-Auto deal signed between Google and Automotive Alliance of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi. Android, the world’s largest and most popular Operating System will finally find it’s way into cars thereby enabling millions of car owners to have an in-built Android equipped system right into the dashboard making it easier for users to use Google services like Google maps, voice assistant to answer text and calls and other Google Play Store apps.
This will provide a richer ecosystem of automotive apps based on the Android platform and make the cars more Android friendly without completely kicking off Apple iOS from the party. Users can install any apps directly from Google playstore and customize your home screen the way you like with beautiful themes, wall papers and your favorite apps for a secure, rich digital life while driving. Not only that, this new system will include the carmaker Alliance Intelligent Cloud, thus enabling remote software upgrades and vehicle diagnostics.
Major Car makers all over the world are afraid of allowing Google and Apple into their cars believing that this will give the American tech giants complete access and eventual control of the car systems and steal customers data for their selfish purpose but this Alliance with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi will build trust and open the door for others to come in. According to Hiroshi Lockheimer, senior vice president of platforms & ecosystems at Google, he says “Google and Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi share a common vision of delivering an intelligent, safe and seamless in-car experience with apps and services that are familiar, upgradable and connected.” Lots of car owners use iPhones as well so the car makers will definitely find a way to make the system compatible with iOS as well. When this feature rolls out, instead of plugging in your phone to use Android or Apple feature in your dashboard, your car will come with it straight from the factory starting from 2021.
