Bring your IOT apps to cars

Posted by Brad Hinkel, Product Manager, Android Automotive Developer Platform

To deliver seamless experiences in cars, we’re now enabling developers to bring their internet of things (IOT) apps to cars. This will allow users to easily manage IOT systems like home security and doors directly from their car. You can now launch IOT apps to production for both Android Auto and Android Automotive OS.
