  • Smart Replies
    A smart feature that works in collaboration with the Google Assistant, Smart Replies makes it easier for you to respond to incoming messages. The Smart Reply feature shows users suggested replies for all incoming messages, just like on your android phone.
  • Quick Play For Music
    One of the many convenience updates, Android Auto’s latest update also lets users quickly start grooving to music from their favorite apps, without the need of opening it first. Additionally, users can also search for music, via voice commands, just by saying the artist’s name or song.
  • Digital Car Key
    For quite a long time, iPhones were capable enough to be used as digital car keys. Google too has buckled up in its latest update. If you happen to own a BMW car and also a phone like the Samsung Galaxy S21 or Google Pixel, then you can use your device to unlock, lock, and start your vehicle via your device’s UWB chip. The feature however will be limited to certain countries and phones for a while.
