Apple Music finally supports Android Auto with latest update

Although Google Assistant has a typing feature on smartphones, it lacks from Android Auto in order to keep your hands on the steering wheel. You can navigate to specific points of interest, and you might use both Google Maps and Waze, according to your preferences.

Though Android Auto is available in more than 30 countries, Google will be rolling out its Assistant to Australia, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States initially, before heading worldwide. So whether you have a compatible vehicle - or the Android Auto app - you can now have hands-free help while you drive.

Up until recently, if you wanted to use Apple CarPlay and a navigation app, you had to use Apple Maps.

It can be used to find out the weather, local traffic information, read texts, calendar entries and more.

Also new with v2.6 is the ability to search songs using lyrics, redesigned artist pages, Friends Mixes, and a Top 100 playlist that houses the best 100 songs for the day around the world.

Google Assistant through Android Auto can find out search information, which will be read out to you through your in-car sound system, and even be used to tell you your petrol levels or lock your doors if your vehicle supports that feature.

The update to Google Maps brings the version to 5.0 and it's available to download and install on supported devices as of the time of publication.
