“An Android-based operating system for cars.”

Does not need a smartphone to work

My vehicle offers an option where I can connect my phone to its dashboard system and a limited selection of apps appear. I can easily use my phone's navigation system without using the phone itself. According to The Verge, however, those days me be over with the release of Android P based system, which will allow it to run natively inside a car.

This new Android-based system would offer the benefits of modern Android Auto (like access to the automotive-approved app ecosystem on the Google Play Store). It will tap into a car’s system-level operations, meaning you could ask Google Assistant to turn on the heat, turn off the seat warmers, or even book maintenance appointments. The system is also customizable to suit carmakers’ differing styles, giving them more control than they get with projected Android Auto (or Apple’s CarPlay, for that matter).
