Android Auto now supports Web conferencing apps, Prime Video, and more

Google’s automotive-focused applications, Android Auto and Google Built-in for Automobiles, have received a flood of new improvements. The improvements largely concentrate on productivity- and entertainment-focused features, with the goal of enhancing the driving and parking experience on all supported vehicles. Now, drivers who have Android Auto-equipped cars may join Zoom and WebEx via Cisco audio-only conference calls.

Users will soon be able to access new entertainment alternatives while parked and participate in meetings over the phone using a few different meeting applications while moving. It is crucial to note that the apps we are discussing have audio-only features, preventing visual interactions that can distract the driver. It also now offers Prime Video access on some car models. The Prime offers award-winning shows like “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “The Boys,” as well as hits like “AIR.”

First, only parked vehicles are permitted to use the Prime Video app. The second is that just a limited number of models from Volvo, Renault, and Polestar are presently offered on the Google Play Store, and additional manufacturers are expected to join soon.

Weather updates and digital car features:

Vivaldi, a safe internet browser, is also included in the most recent release. It is presently accessible for download on Google Play, facilitating in-car surfing. Through the Weather Channel app, Android Auto also offers hourly predictions, radar data, and real-time weather updates. With the aid of this useful function, you can now remain current on weather changes while traveling. To name a few, Google Auto now offers real-time weather updates through the Weather Channel app and also supports web conferencing.

The aforementioned app boasts hourly updates, real-time warnings, and a handy “Trip View” radar, making it one of the world’s most accurate in terms of weather forecasts. To put it briefly, this software has the advantage of not getting caught off guard by unexpected downpours.

The digital auto key, which enables smartphone-based vehicle unlocking, locking, and starting, is the final feature that Google is increasing support for.

Support for digital vehicle keys is now being made available on a few Hyundai, Genesis, and Kia cars in the US, Canada, and Korea for users of compatible Pixel and Samsung smartphones, including the Pixel 7 Pro and Samsung S23+. This feature has already been made accessible in various European nations.
