Our mobile phones add so much to our lives, connect with people, enrich our entertainment and make a big difference in our daily lives. At the same time, cars have also brought great convenience to our lives, but because of this, there are many cases of accidents caused by the use of mobile phones while driving.
Google has come up with another solution — a system that seamlessly integrates phones into cars, allowing us to use our favorite apps without taking our eyes off the road. Android Auto is an android function specially designed for cars launched by Google, which aims to replace the car manufacturer's native in-vehicle system to execute android applications and services and access and access android mobile phone content.

Android Auto: Pros & Cons
Android Auto is a great way to use your phone apps while driving. It brings most popular apps to car's screen and keeps all factory control functions, voice command, steering wheel button, and touch screen.
The original intention of Google to launch this function is to provide convenience and safe driving, so it does not open all applications, and blocks all the visible entertainment apps, such as games and video streaming medias, which greatly reduces its entertainment function.
