Hyundai has announced ahead of Google I/O later this week that the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is the first consumer vehicle to integrate Google’s Android Auto automotive OS.
Hyundai will offer 2015 Sonata owners with navigation features in a free software update that integrates Android Auto into the car’s interface. Android Auto will provide Sonata features such as Google Now, Google Maps and streaming music functionality controlled by voice commands. The vehicles pair with drivers’ Android smartphones.
More details are available in the Hyundai announcement.
Windows 10 for Android and iPhone
Microsoft has officially announced that Windows 10 will work on Android and iPhone devices.
“Regardless of the operating systems you choose across your devices, everything important to you should roam across the products you already own—including your phone,” wrote Joe Belfiore, corporate VP of the operating systems group at Microsoft, in a blog post.
To help connect Windows PC to a phone, Microsoft is releasing a phone companion app with Windows 10, and will provide directions on how to make the two work together.
In addition, Microsoft also announced Cortana will be available on Android phones and iPhones.
