Google announces Android Auto. A completely redesigned Android SDK for use in cars. According to Google, Android Auto is easy with minimal distraction, it’s a voice-activated system. With Android Auto, you’ll be able to play music, respond (by voice) to text messages, request navigation, or ask for recommendations for restaurants, gas stations, parking garages, and more. It runs over your Android phone, which plugs into the car. Android Auto will be available later this year, with the next version of Android.
