Android Auto review
Android Auto is a smart application that allows you to manage other apps on your mobile phone while you are driving. It was developed and published by Google LLC, only for Android devices. Driving cars is a very responsible activity because you are responsible not only for your life but also for the lives of passengers in your car, oncoming car and just passers-by. With Android Auto, you can stay connected with the world without any risks. For example, you can answer the messages, turn on the music or see the route to your destination. To do this, you no longer need to pick up the phone and distract from the road. Just say “Ok Google,” and the application activates automatically. Besides this, users can:
- Check the calendar to know all your meetings;
- Get the latest worldwide news;
- Set reminders;
- Make calls and answer the incoming calls;
- Use different messages including WhatsApp, Telegram, WeChat, Google Allo, and so on;
- Check the weather;
