So we have heard of how Apple has made efforts to bring iOS into vehicles through their iOS in the car program, but it looks like Google could be interested in bringing Android into vehicles as well. This is not the first time that Android has debuted in vehicles but if reports are to be believed, an Android entertainment of sorts is expected to make its debut in Audi’s vehicles. According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal, they are claiming that Google and Audi are rumored to make an announcement at CES 2014 which is taking place in a couple of weeks. The announcement is said to be about an Android-powered in-car entertainment system and will see other companies, not just Audi, hopping on board the Android bandwagon.
It is unclear as to what sort of features we might be looking at, but presumably we will see things such as access to various Android apps, Google services, navigation, music, and more, with the entertainment unit running on Android itself as opposed to syncing up with an iOS device, which is what Apple is doing at the moment with car manufacturers. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but competing with Apple in the vehicle space would not be a complete stretch of the imagination. We will be like at CES 2014 so be sure to check back with us then for the details.
