Android Auto Review :: Improvement Area

Performance of Android Auto can be improved with concerns about slowness and crashes popular among users at the moment

Final Thoughts:

Since its launch in June 2014, Android Auto received mixed reactions and was under the wraps until a series of updates after 7th November 2016 update which made users interested again with improved compatibility and features.

Positive changes have started to flow but there is still a gap among users with Performance and Compatibility issues. Android Auto would have to continue to upgrade and improve in order to get Best-In-Class Infotainment Tag
