Android Auto Addendum to the Developer Distribution Agreement

March 11, 2015

By distributing your Products to Android Auto, You consent to be bound by these terms in addition to the existing Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement and Google Play Developer Program Policies (the “Agreement”). If there is a conflict between these terms and the Agreement, these terms govern distribution to Android Auto. Capitalized terms used below but not defined below have the meaning ascribed to them under the Agreement.

  1. Documentation. Developer will only access or use Android Auto as described in the documentation located at developers.android.com/auto (as may be amended from time to time)
  2. UX Design. Developer will adhere to the Design Guidelines specified in the documentation, which includes not modifying the User Interface or submitting Products that could be considered a high-risk activity for a user to engage in while driving.
  3. Intellectual Property Rights and Brand Features. As required in the Agreement, You are responsible for your Products, including that the Products (and any content within or brand features) are licensed for use in an automobile.
  4. Approval and Public Availability. If You publish your Products with a car-enabled APK, your Products will be subject to prior review and approval prior to external publication whether to Android Auto or the Store. Google will notify You of the results of your submission and any such approval is in Google’s sole discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Google reserves the right to block any Products being used in a car running Android Auto at any time for any reason.
