Along with a whole mess of other neat new technologies, Wednesday's Google I/O presentation brought some news on the future of Android Auto integration in cars.

At the conference, new Android Auto features were being shown off on a Maserati Ghibli that was modified by Qualcomm.

Both the gauge cluster and the center stack were taken over by two massive screens that were running a software called Android Auto N.Cars that have the ability to run the Android Auto N software can have their screens, like the two in the Maserati, completely taken over by the Google software.

But cars that are already equipped with Android Auto tech are expected to get upgrades later in 2016.

Those updates will include things like Waze integration finally , voice control by saying "OK Google," and the ability to connect phones to Android Auto via Wi-Fi, instead of by just using a USB cable.Apple CarPlay better step it up.Read the original article on Tech Insider.
