Together with the new mobile operating system Android L Google has also led the development of the OS for cars, which should see the light of day until the end of the current year. And thanks to the documents meant for developers, we can see how it will look like a third-party application for Android Auto.
Recall that Android Auto will be installed in cars as on-Board operating system and manage its functions will be through the onboard touchscreen car. However, applications for Android Auto will not be completely independent. In fact, it will be all the same applications that are installed on the smartphone or the tablet driver and the vehicle electrical system of the car will be with them only to interact. For example, using the on-Board touch screen users will be able to read received on the smartphone notifications, control music playback, and use the voice control system. The same system is used in the Android version for portable devices: in order to install the application on a smart watch, in the beginning, you should install it on your smartphone.
In addition, Wear between Android and Android Auto traced another close relationship: when creating a software application developers for Android Auto will not be able to show a lot of frivolity, because Google decided to carefully protect the user interface automotive OS. For this reason, developers will not be able to use modified skins, or skins. However, be allowed to use multiple color schemes, which, incidentally, for the convenience of the driver will vary depending on the time of day.
With the release of Android Auto users will be available in just a couple of types of third-party applications. These include applications to display on-Board display coming to smartphone messaging, and media players.
