The system is intuitive to some extent, and it goes beyond the standard Android Auto. In addition, Android Automotive can be completely without intelligence.Mobile phoneUse in case. More importantly, it can control the car's core functions, such as changing the temperature inside the car and adjusting steering, braking and other key mechanical functions, all of which can be controlled through the central system and voice, thanks to Google Assistant.

Although Polestar 2 was released in February this year and will not be in production until next year, it will be the first car officially equipped with Android Automotive and will also come with a certified Google Play application, including Google Maps. Other automakers, such as Fiat Chrysler and Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, have signed agreements to use the software in new cars. Audi is the only car manufacturer outside Volvo that announced an early partnership with Google in 2017.


Broadly speaking, this is just another chapter in the ongoing battle for car control.

This means that the traditional automotive industry can retain at least part of its strength when cooperating with technology giants.
