  • Android Auto Wireless: With this version and a compatible vehicle, it will no longer be necessary to link your mobile phone to the car by cable to use Android Auto.
  • Single use permission: for the most sensitive permissions such as microphone, camera and location you can say that the application can only access that permission once.
  • Automatic restart of permissions– Permissions will be reset automatically when we haven’t used an app for a long time.
