Android Auto Features

Google Assistant

With Google Assistant, you can make voice commands to find routes, listen to music, and even check the weather. Using your voice commands with Google Assistant helps you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Simply "Hey Google." or (if available) press the mic button on your steering wheel to activate Google Assistant in your Android Auto-compatible vehicle.


Get turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic notifications with Google Maps and Waze. Google Assistant can also help you get directions to nearby gas stations or EV chargers. Directions appear on your vehicle's in-car display in a familiar Google Maps interface.


Google Assistant can read your messages out loud, and you can even respond by talking. Making calls and using your favorite messaging app with your voice is another way Android Auto makes driving less distracting.


Access your favorite music, podcasts, and audiobooks through apps like Spotify and Google Play Books. You can pause or play it all with your voice, thanks to Google Assistant.

How to Set Up Android Auto

  1. Check your car: Make sure your car or stereo is compatible with Android Auto.
  2. Check your phone: With Android 10, Android Auto is built in - so you don't need the app to get started. If you have Android 9 or below, you'll need to get the Android Auto app on your phone (download Android Auto).
  3. Check your car: Make sure your car or stereo is compatible with Android Auto.

If you have difficulty setting up Android Auto in your vehicle, check your owner's manual for more information specific to your car.
