What is Android Auto and what's in it for you?
What is Android Auto?
Android Auto is a simplified Android version to use on the display of your car. This version is aimed at easy operation and as little distraction as possible, so you can keep your eyes on the road. You can fast forward a song with the push button, and, even safer, you can use speech commands for Google Assistant. You can start your navigation like this as well. In addition, the Assistant reads out incoming messages. You can reply with an automated message or with a speech command, but you can't type yourself.
Support in the Netherlands
At this point in time, Android Auto isn't available in the Netherlands. Android developer Google needs to develop Android Auto for each country separately to comply with laws and regulations. The Netherlands isn't just a small country, the laws and regulations regarding the use of your smartphone in the car are also very strict. This is probably why Google has decided to develop the software for other countries first. If and when Android Auto will be available in the Netherlands is unknown at this point.
