Finally! OK Google Is Coming Out To Google Auto
Android Auto now works right on your phone screen, or on your car display. On your phone screen, download the Android Auto app on your phone and use Android Auto right on your phone screen. On your car, connect your Android phone to a compatible vehicle, and use Android Auto right on your car display.
The Android Auto
Whether on your phone screen or on your car display, Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With larger touch targets, a simplified interface, and easy-to-use voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road. To use Android Auto, you need an Android Auto compatible vehicle or aftermarket radio and an Android phone running 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.
When you connect your Android phone to the compatible vehicle or radio, Android Auto will display applications on the vehicle’s screen. For more information about Android Auto compatibility, please visit google support page.
OK Google Is Coming Out To Google Auto
As reported by Android Police, Android Auto now supports saying OK Google to wake up the voice control interface. There's a toggle in the Google voice settings where you set how you want the hotword to work. Prior to this update, the "While driving" toggle only lists Google Maps. After the update, most people see both Google Maps and Android Auto listed. It's probably a combination of the new APK and an account-level switch.
The latest version of Auto (v2.0.6427) seems to be a prerequisite in order for the toggle in the Search app to show the Auto support, but that won’t automatically activate it by itself. Given that this can represent a significant boost in security, we sure hope it won’t take long, as per 9to5 Google.
You can grab the latest build of Android Auto from APK Mirror and give it a shot yourself. You will likely also need the latest Google app update, but check your device first. You might already have it so no need to update it on settings of your smartphone.
