Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Selama beberapa tahun terakhir, Android Auto semakin banyak diadopsi di sejumlah kendaraan dari berbagai produsen otomotif. Meski popularitasnya meningkat, Toyota menolak untuk membiarkan perangkat lunak dari Google tersebut masuk ke kendaraannya.

Kini, Toyota dilaporkan telah mencapai kesepakatan dengan Google untuk membawa Android Auto ke kendaraannya, lansir laman Android Authority, Senin.

Saat Android Auto pertama kali memasuki pasar, muncul kekhawatiran tentang jumlah kendaraan dan informasi pribadi yang diperlukan Google untuk membuat perangkat lunak tersebut dapat bekerja. Karena alasan inilah Toyota menyatakan tidak ingin perangkat lunak pihak ketiga diinstal ke sistem infotainmennya.

Namun, pada bulan Januari tahun ini, Toyota setuju untuk mengizinkan CarPlay Apple hadir di Avalon, Corolla Hatchback, dan RAV4 dengan lebih banyak lagi kendaraan di masa mendatang.

Sejak saat itu, perwakilan perusahaan telah menyatakan bahwa ada permintaan untuk Android Auto, tetapi tidak berkomentar jika Toyota akan memilih untuk menyertakan platform tersebut.

Sayangnya, tidak informasi mengenai kendaraan Toyota mana yang akan menjadi yang pertama menjalankan Android Auto. Pengumuman resmi tentang kesepakatan dengan Google tersebut kabarnya akan berlangsung bulan Oktober.

Toyota has reportedly agreed to bring Android Auto to its vehicles

Over the last several years, Android Auto has made it into an increasing number of vehicles from various manufacturers. Despite its growing popularity, Toyota has refused to let Google’s infotainment software into its automobiles. But according to Bloomberg, Toyota has come to an agreement with Google, and this might soon change.

When Android Auto first hit the market, concerns were raised about the amount of vehicle and personal information Google required to make the software work. It was for this reason that Toyota claimed not to want any third party software installed onto its infotainment systems.

But back in January of this year, Toyota agreed to allow Apple’s CarPlay into the Avalon, Corolla Hatchback, and RAV4 with more to come in the future. Since that point, a company representative has stated that there has been demand for Android Auto, but wouldn’t comment on if Toyota would ever choose to include the platform.

Unfortunately, Bloomberg was not able to identify which of Toyota’s vehicles would be first to run Android Auto or if the platform would also be making its way to the company’s luxury brand, Lexus. An official announcement about the agreement with Google could be made as soon as October.
