Google is slowing down the way manufacturers make Android Cars apps
Google is looking forward to make it easy for manufacturers to build Android Auto Apps. The company opened the Android for Cars app library in the Jetpack tool suite in March, To help developers bring navigation, vehicles and software to electric vehicles Android Auto. The library also helps Android cars, so the manufacturers will run out create apps which is compatible with both platforms. As such, manufacturers do not have to share multiple components to ensure that their software works for both functions.
The first few developers are bringing apps in those categories to Android Automotive, plus Chargepoint, Parkwhiz and Plugshare. Google plans to open the application library for other groups later. Initially, the company only allows other software developers to create it media and messaging software for Android cars.
Android Automotive is a complete infotainment system that should not rely on a connected Android device. Google says that, by the end of this year, more than 10 types of vehicles will support the platform, including cars from Volvo, General Motors and Renault. With so many cars to use Automotive, it makes sense that Google wants to help developers develop this app.
