Using Android Auto™  | How To | Uconnect®

[Music playing] From work to play, your phone is a big part
of your everyday life. Now, make it a part of all those miles in between with Uconnect,
now with Android Auto™ integration. Android Auto extends the Android™ platform
into your car in a way that’s purpose-built for your Uconnect touchscreen. So you can
enjoy your Android-powered phone on the go! Jam some tunes right from a favorite streaming
device, like Google Play Music™, Pandora or Spotify. Make calls and send texts. And
you’ll always stay on track when Google Maps leads the way. These features, along
with many of your favorite Android Apps, are now available with Android Auto. If you want Android Auto to launch automatically
when your Android phone is connected, go to the Apps page, then Projection Manager, and
select Smartphone Device Mirroring… otherwise, keep the box unchecked. And, the Auto Play feature automatically plays music from your Android phone whenever it’s connected. You can turn it on or off in the
Audio category of your Uconnect Settings. To use Android Auto, just get the app on Google
Play using your Android-powered smartphone. Then, connect your phone to the USB media
port in your vehicle. You may have to accept terms of use and enable
your Bluetooth® connection the first time you launch Android Auto. Look at the Phone icon in your touchscreen
menu bar. You’ll know your phone is connected and recognized when it changes to the Android
Auto icon. Android Auto should then launch automatically, or you can press the icon to
get it rolling yourself. There are four ways to interact with Android
Auto, and all of them keep your phone safely tucked away. Use Android’s speech technology,
your steering wheel audio controls, radio faceplate controls, or the touchscreen itself,
which displays a special Android Auto version of your phone. Now, let’s say you want to use Google Maps
for navigation. All you have to do is launch Android Auto, then push and hold the VR button.
Once you hear the beep, you can set your desired location by voice. DRIVER: Directions to 1000 Chrysler Drive in Auburn Hills. VOICE OVER: Keep in mind, Android Auto uses your smartphone’s data plan and some additional charges may apply. Also, some functions may be limited if you’re
not within cellular coverage. So sit back and get the most out of your Android
phone… with Android Auto and Uconnect. This video is not intended to take the place
