Android Auto is generally seen as a simple way to mirror relevant content from your phone to a car’s screen, but there is also a native version that can run an entire vehicle’s infotainment system. This week, Lincoln announced plans to use native Android Auto in some of its future vehicles.
In a press release, Lincoln confirms its intention to use a “single digital platform” built on Android. the Edge reports that this new experience will arrive in Lincoln vehicles in 2023, at the same time that Ford will also adopt a native version of Android Auto in its vehicles.
Currently, this implementation of Android, known as Android Automotive, is only available in the Polestar 2, but is expected to be adopted by Ford, Volvo, Vauxhall, Hummer and other major car brands.
Future Lincoln vehicles will benefit from a unique digital platform built on the Android operating system for an ever-improving and ever more personalized ownership experience. The Lincoln Intelligence System will help create more connected sensory experiences.
Beyond adopting Android Auto in such a big way, Lincoln has also announced that it will launch its first fully electric vehicle in 2022.
