Android Auto will reach BMW cars in 2020: These countries and devices will support it

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-12-12 923 0

It was in 2016 when BMW began to implement Apple CarPlay in their vehicles, which means that during all this time alone iPhone users could take advantage of the interface adapted to the driving of their mobile. After implementing a subscription to use CarPlay in 2018 and removing it a few days ago, BMW has gone a step further by announcing the arrival of Android Auto, the CarPlay equivalent of Google and Android.

Android Auto will arrive in July 2020, but not to all vehicles. The main requirement is to have the 7.0 version of the BMW operating system and Live Cockpit Professional. This is the one available in Series 3, 5, 7 and 8, as well as in BMW X3, X5 and X7, which make up the most recent SUV catalog). One point to keep in mind is that Android Auto Wireless is not as expanded as Android Auto cabling, which greatly reduces the possibilities.

The company spokesman said that "most of our customers use iOS mobile devices" and therefore "Apple CarPlay had been their main focus," although according to the company, "many of our customers have pointed out the importance for them of having Android Auto inside a BMW to use a number of familiar features of Android smartphones safely.
