What is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay?

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is a feature that most new vehicles have equipped in their entertainment system. It offers users a simpler way of utilizing their important phone applications right on their vehicle display screen. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay have been engineered to display the features drivers rely on most. Android Auto is built around a suite of Google apps including Google Maps, Google Now, talk to Google and Google Play Music as well as Skype, Spotify, Pandora and more. Apple CarPlay allows for driver selected iPhone features and applications to be displayed on and utilized through the MyLink screen or voice command. The most important aspect is hands-free calling for safer and undistracted driving (and to follow state laws).
