This week saw Google host their annual I/O conference, where the company made several major announcements for all of their divisions. While the deep dive into their new Pixel Fold phone has caught the most buzz, Google also announced a number of new features that will be coming to Android Auto and Android Automotive OS.
The company announced that they will be bringing several conferencing apps to vehicles running Android software, such as Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams. Google mentions that any meetings taken in the car will be audio-only for safety issues, and will feature a simplified control system. This announcement comes alongside several other features coming to Android Auto and Android Automotive OS, including new games, entertainment apps, and integrated Waze navigation. Google says that the new meeting apps will be available “soon.”
