Chrysler cars will come with Android
Google is working with Fiat Chrysler to develop driverless minivans. But the cooperation between the two companies does not seem to be here. Google and Fiat Chrysler announced a new concept system called Uconnect, based on Android Nougat. It is noteworthy that Android Auto is not preferred in this new system with 8.4 inch screen.
Supported by Android, Uconnect can integrate seamlessly with services such as Google Assistant and Google Maps. The system will also support third-party applications such as NPR One, Pocket Casts and Spotify.
Uconnect will be showcased in a Chrysler 300 at CES 2017. It is not yet known when the system will evolve from an experiment to a full-fledged production, and when this transformation will take place. However, it will not be surprising when this system goes beyond its present state.
Google works closely with Fiat Chrysler to strengthen its presence in the automotive sector
Fiat aims to strengthen its ties with the technology world by supporting systems like Android Auto or CarPlay. It should be noted that Fiat Chrysler’s connection with technology is more limited than with companies like Ford and Tesla. Google has taken an important step in strengthening its presence in the automotive industry by building an in-car information system around the robust framework of Android. The company intends that automakers will use UConnect instead of Apple CarPlay and other alternative solutions.
