Toyota is finally adding Android Auto support, starting with its trucks and SUVs

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Yes, it's finally happening — Toyota is putting Android Auto in its vehicles. For the longest time, it was one of the two major holdouts (we're still looking at you, BMW), but the Japanese car manufacturer announced today at the Chicago Auto Show that Android Auto is coming, starting with six models.

Here's the list:

  • 4Runner 2020-
  • Aygo 2018-
  • Sequoia 2020-
  • Tacoma 2020-
  • Tundra 2020-
  • Yaris (Europe Only) 2019-

Interestingly, four of the six models here are pickups and SUVs (the Aygo and Yaris are hatchbacks that aren't sold stateside).

Popular music player Poweramp adds support for Android Auto

Friday, February 1st, 2019

It's great that more and more vehicles ship with Android Auto these days, but I still find the app offering to be rather limited. I had to wait until last summer to finally get to use Waze instead of Maps, and even today only a handful of software is available on Google's in-car solution – beyond Waze, Spotify's the only other Auto-supporting app I use. Several other third-party music applications are integrated with the system though, and the famous Poweramp player is the latest one to make its way into your car.

Android Auto v3.9 improves visibility for currently selected apps [APK Download]

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Things are really happening for Android Auto this week. They're not necessarily big things, but they are things, and that's pretty cool. In addition to yesterday's news that Google Podcasts is finally integrated with Auto, meaning we can stop fiddling with our phones to listen to podcasts and start fiddling with the screen built into the car, there's also an update to the Auto app itself that brings its own helpful change to the source picker.

Google is rolling out Android Auto support for Podcasts

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

When Google released the all new Podcasts app (again), many people were surprised its stark lack of features. Many things were missing, like auto-downloading, Cast support, and Android Auto integration. While many of these things have either trickled in, or are obviously on the to-do list, Google v8.91 is finally checking Auto support off of that list.

As you would expect from an Android Auto interface, this looks like most of the other podcast players out there.

Kenwood introduces three Android Auto head units for 2019, topping out at $1,600

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

Android Auto hasn't changed much since last year, which means that the revised double-DIN head unit models being revealed by car electronics companies this year won't be all that interesting. Case in point: Kenwood's three new Android Auto head units, which are being revealed at CES, are pretty uninteresting. The only part that's interesting to me is the flagship model's stunning $1,599.95 MSRP.

Let's start with the two cheaper models: the $599.95 eXcelon DMX7706S and the $649.95 eXcelon DMX706S.

Volvo’s electric Polestar 2 will be the first car to feature Android Automotive

Friday, January 4th, 2019

Back at I/O '17, Google announced that Volvo and Audi would be the first manufacturers to introduce a standalone, more deeply integrated version of Android Auto. One year later, at I/O '18, Google actually showed off several cars with prototypes of what it now called "Android Automotive." Now that Volvo has revealed that its all-electric Polestar 2 will be the first car with Android Automotive onboard, we finally have a more concrete arrival date for Google's long-awaited infotainment system.

Google rolls out new media and messaging features to Android Auto

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

In case you missed the APK Teardown yesterday, Google has made several new features official in Android Auto today. The message preview and new media UI from the teardown are on the docket, but Google also made some tweaks to media search and group messaging in the car. As always, Google says it has worked to add more convenience features without sacrificing safety. I've been using the updated Android Auto for the last week, and while it's a minor update, there are a few nice additions.

Android Auto v3.8 adds optional message previews and revamps the music player [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

The latest Auto update is rolling out and it's making a couple of substantial changes, at least by the standards of an Auto update. You'll now have the option to see the first several words of incoming messages when they arrive, and the music player has been given a makeover that changes both its looks and a little bit of functionality. It seems this update is rolling out to a pretty small number of people right now.
