3.10.2021 | Honda announced to integrate Google’s embedded Android Automotive OS in future productions.
Google nabbed another big automaker in its quest to become the default operating system for cars. Recently, Honda announced that, they will soon begin rolling out vehicles with Google’s embedded Android Automotive OS.
The first Honda vehicles with embedded Android will start rolling out in 2022. The Japanese Automaker said ““We will collaborate with Google to better integrate Google in-vehicle services in our vehicles including the ability to more-easily use features like Google Assistant, Google Maps functionality and other in-vehicle apps offered through Google Play.”
There are only two cars available today with embedded Android Automotive: the Polestar 2 and Volvo XC40 Recharge. But Google has made deals with a number of other automakers, including Ford, General Motors, and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, that will result in millions of future vehicles released with default Android operating systems.
