Some of the biggest car manufacturers on the planet have embraced infotainment systems like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Those who hadn’t are gradually jumping on the bandwagon as well. Even though BMW has decided that it’s not going to add Android Auto support because it doesn’t really see any value in supporting it, Renault sees value in Google’s in-car infotainment platform. French car company Renault today confirmed that it’s going to add full support for Android Auto in several of its vehicles.
Renault customers will find Android Auto support in the 2017 models of the Espace, Kadjar, Megane, Megane Estate, Scenic, Grand Scenic, Talisman, and the Talisman Estate.
However, the list surely doesn’t end here. The car manufacturer has also confirmed that Android Auto support will soon be offered in 2017 models of the Captur, Clio, Clio Estate, Kangoo, Koleos, Master, Trafic, Twingo, and Zoe.
This is certainly good news for Renault customers who want to have this functionality in their cars. Android Auto makes it much easier to use core features of your smartphone via an interface that’s meant for use behind the wheel so it eliminates the need to take your hands off the steering wheel while providing all essential features like navigation and music.
