Great app, works fine. Amazon Music is great if you want to play your online music (it can't browse offline music if I use voice command), Rocket Player is a bit unsteady (sometimes it can't find the requested music if I use voice command). Please get Poweramp on the supported apps' list. Google Map is good as always (despite the lack of speed limit/cameras option). Haven't had a chance to test the voice call option yet but will update if something found.
Damn near perfect for what I need while driving. Maps are a priority and it works great even with voice commands. Music also works well and it works with multiple music apps. Personally I only use Google Play music, Amazon Music and Pandora but it is easy to flip between. Love the voice texting. Works great for quick messages... way better than a phone call when the wife wants something from the store on the way home. Biggest problem was that only car play was enabled by default in my Explorer, had to dig through menus to get Android auto working.
Recently started receiving message "internet connection isn't stable". It has been few days. I know that my 4G is working fine as when I disconnect and use youtube it works. Would love to have faster response for tasks. For ex: instead of complete sentence from auto should ask as "Say command", faster speech, more voice recognition commands, more apps integration, calls through skype/messenger/viber/whatsapp etc. I love the app however would love the developer to take it to the next level, which it desperately needs to survive and evolve with growing needs. I would not mind paying for added features.
This should be the only way you drive, with Android Auto. It blows all the vehicle manufacturers' user interfaces away. Having more functionality and being able to ask Google questions while driving would be a nice improvement. Right now you can only ask questions about Google maps for the most part, which is still really useful.
It may not have all the functions of the infotainment systems already built into your car, but it is years ahead in terms of ease of use and 3rd party integration. Not to mention voice control (Google Assistant). If your car has the ability to display AA through the head unit, it will change how you interact with your car for the better. It's only limited by what the car manufacturers allow. At least I know that this app can be updated, unlike the OS on my 17 Ridgeline, which I'm sure will never get an update.
Good start. I'd rather an Apple Carplay-like interface with larger tap targets, but with the same Google apps. Waze integration is nice. Sometimes Spotify is sometimes unresponsive or unable to dive deeper than 3 levels without hanging. Being able to set defaults would also be nice. Not really a fan of the Home Screen; cards seem to show things I don't necessarily need right now. Google Now voice assistant is of course great. Looking forward to more updates.
