Google confirmed its plans to bring its Android OS into cars this morning, following reports last week that the company was working closely with Audi on a new infotainment system. Today, the newly formed Open Automotive Alliance (OAA) alliance between Google, Audi, GM, Honda, Hyundai and Nvidia was officially announced.
"In this multi-screen world, switching between our different devices should be easy and seamless," writes Android director of engineering Patrick Brady, arguing that your apps and personal information should show up not just on your devices but in your car as well. The in-car service would presumably sync your favorite Android apps and music right into your dashboard and also offer eyes-free voice controls for Google services like Maps and Gmail.
Google doesn't offer many details in its introductory blog post, but the company is expected to use CES 2014 to show off the first Android-equipped cars. We'll be on the lookout for any more news on display here in Las Vegas. Stay tuned
