Toyota Finally Giving In To Android?

By  | 

Android users were not too happy when Toyota only offered the Apple CarPlay infotainment system on their vehicles but it looks like Toyota won’t be leaving them out for long the automaker announced that Android Auto will also be offered on 2020 models.

While some people might think that Toyota choosing CarPlay over Android Auto was because they like Apple more than Google but the fact is that Toyota was not too happy about some of the data that Google wanted in exchange for the Android Auto licensing.

At this point, we do not know if it was Toyota that finally decided to accept Google’s term and give them the data they need or if it was Google that gave in and changes the terms just so that Toyota would put their Android Auto on their 2020 models.

Of course, at the end of the day, we are still happy that we can finally connect our Android smartphone to the vehicle but what price are we going to pay to have it?
