This new update brings a native in-car interface to non-iPhone users for the first time. Users will be able to select Apple Music as a source when connecting their phone to Android auto. It is better than Bluetooth workaround.
With Android auto support, Apple Music users will be able to control audio playback through their car’s infotainment system. They will be able to change tracks, navigate through playlists and many more features.
It supports micro SD card storage. That does not exist on iOS. This test version introduces some new features coming to iOS 12 users. Features like lyrics searching, friends mix, and artist pages to start personalized stations.
To support Apple, Google recently updated its Maps app for iOS 12. They updated its app to make use of the new support for third-party navigation apps within Apple CarPlay.
Earlier this month, Apple introduced a recognized user interface for artist collections. This collection separates albums, singles, EPs, compilations and other content into different categories.
It is amazing that Apple Music supports Android and Android auto. We feel that this is just a start of Apple. Apple can also add Android support for the Apple watch. This is good news for those Android users who live in a country Spotify and YouTube Music is not available. Apple was privately testing Android Auto Integration in version 2.6.0 beta. Finally, Apple Music works with Android Auto. You should definitely try all the new features in your Android phone.
