Report: Google Android to be found in cars very soon

Computer giant, Apple, has been known to be preparing a new in-car system for up and coming infotainment systems, specifically with smartphone and multimedia integration. It’s colloquially referred to as Apple’s CarPlay system and is essentially Apple’s iOS morphed into infotainment software–a much needed move considering many of the infotainment systems of today are plagued by ergonomic issues. And ergonomic efficiency happens to be one of Apple’s strong suits.

Though because Apple is dipping its toes into the in-car systems, joining other tech giants like Tom-Tom, Garmin, Sony and several others who’ve integrated their systems into the automobile, Apple’s arch-rival, Google Android, won’t go unnoticed either. That said, AutomotiveNews reports that Google is preparing their own system, called Google Auto Link. Earlier this year, Google announced a new consortium consisting of themselves, tech giant NVIDIA, and automakers Audi, GM, Honda, and Hyundai, who will all collaborate on future in-car gadgetry.

Not much is know, but you can bet that Android will be popping up in future products of the aforementioned automakers, if not more in the coming future.
