BMW introducing Android Auto in vehicles from mid-2020

The BMW Group will introduce wireless connectivity to Android Auto in vehicles starting in mid-2020.

The wireless connection makes the process of linking up an Android smartphone to a BMW extremely user-friendly with a simplified interface.

Android Auto is integrated directly into BMW’s fully digital cockpit, meaning that customers can view all important information not just on the central Control Display, but also in intelligently adapted form in the instrument cluster’s Info Display as well as in the Head-Up Display, where it appears directly in the driver’s driving direction.

The Google Assistant on Android Auto makes it easy to get directions, keep in touch and stay productive.

Many of our customers have pointed out the importance to them of having Android Auto inside a BMW for using a number of familiar Android smartphone features safely without being distracted from the road, in addition to BMW’s own functions and services. We will offer this service to our customers starting in July 2020.

—Peter Henrich, Senior Vice President Product Management BMW

Android Auto in a BMW will be demonstrated live for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 and will be available from July 2020 for all vehicles with BMW Operating System 7.0.
