Today's drivers are always asking why mdash can not integrate these systems into cars as well as infotainment systems like smartphones and the like.

Users do not have to wait too long to see these products into a new generation of Audi or Volvo cars. Audi and Volvo are in the Android Auto car system into the new car, these cars may be listed in 2018 as early as possible.
Both carmakers are looking for forward-looking car designs. Audi's new virtual cockpit looks like a very good high-definition TFT (thin film field effect transistor), allowing the front of the car system and the center of the various aspects of the user to bring an excellent experience. Moreover, this Android Auto expansion after the function also complement each other.
Google's I / O conference has shown the corresponding concept photos, showing the Audi Q8 Sport and Volvo XC60 two cars integrated Android Auto's internal design, of course, these two cars may be to 2018 to launch. After the integration of these features, the car issued instructions as simple as the Android phone, the user simply to express the key fields, such as "OK Google" and so on, so Google Assistant will show the corresponding function, Help the user to complete the contents of the instruction.

Today, the latest version of Siri and Amazon's Alexa have emerged on the market, and Amazon Auto's most exciting new feature is scalability, thanks to the integration of the map. It is conceivable that the user can install the Waze copy correctly into the car without having to repeat the navigation problem.
The latest version of the system will be users in the car to use all the functions integrated into a unified seamless system. This is a great idea, but its difficulty is much harder to say than the early Cadillac CUE, BMW iDrive and Ford's MyFordTouch is a living example.

For example, if a user requests Google to introduce YouTube into a favorite Audi TFT display and play video, it may easily lead to a user's attention to leaving the car. This kind of situation can not happen, for a similar reason, Google's related system is still being tested. There is no doubt that the corresponding restrictions must be taken to ensure that system integration is conducive to user safety.

It is very likely that the 2020 models will not only join Google to try to integrate the driver interface features, but also integrate similar to the many modern SUVs found in the rear seat interface function. Perhaps in the near future, parents of the generation of drivers will install everyone's favorite DVD playback, and the car before the road can start these functions.
