Google Partners With Car Alliance For Android Auto

Google to power Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance infotainment systems

"If you forget your phone, it will work perfectly fine in the vehicle", he said of Google's system.

Renault SA and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. alliance said Tuesday it has teamed up with Google to offer advanced information services from 2021 using the US tech giant's operating system. This new partnership is a great step for Google to achieve ambitions of uptake of its technology to be used in the cars.

The partnership will furnish turn-by-turn navigation with Google Maps as additionally access to automotive applications on the Google Play Store.

It's a sign that automakers are starting choose sides in infotainment software, deciding between developing their own systems or going with an established company that's familiar to customers.

The alliance's executives said many of its customers are already predisposed to using Google's apps over the ones developed by the vehicle companies and their suppliers.

Android will be "embedded" into cars to provide functionality like turn-by-turn navigation through Google Maps and the ability to answer calls or reply to texts. But, a key friction point with carmakers has been the ownership of the valuable data that digital dashboards can collect about drivers.

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, Google tie up for vehicle infotainment system

Vehicle making partners, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi announced on Tuesday that in all its future editions, it will use Google Android operating system to avail the tech giant an opportunity in the infotainment market with the biggest share.

The techno titan is partnering with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance to bring its Android technology to cars.

Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi is the largest global carmaker with combined sales of 10.6 million vehicles past year, and said their future models would "integrate Google apps and services" including Maps and Google Assistant. The implementation of Google services hopes to combat that classic limitation with infotainment vehicles and help push the auto giants into a new era of profit and innovation.

In China, where Google is blocked, the auto alliance will offer drivers unspecified alternatives. We have seen it with Android Auto, which is completely a different approach that allows owners of compatible cars to use Android facilities via smartphones. Neither Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi nor Volvo stated how much access Google would have to a vehicle's data.

The first Android-equipped vehicles will launch in 2021, the alliance said on Tuesday, without disclosing any of the partnership's financial terms.

The cars will use the infotainment system installed in the Android platform instead of vehicle navigation and audio systems.
