Samsung SmartThings integrates with Android Auto
Android Auto support appears in version 18.104.22.168 of SmartThings from Samsung. In this version of the application we already find an Android Auto section within the settings. Once inside this section, you can select which smart home devices will appear in the Android Auto control panel, with a maximum of six devices to select.
In addition, it is also possible to receive notifications from Android Auto when you are close to home, so that the lights at home will turn on before you get out of the car, for example. This type of action will allow you control home devices from the car, so that when you get home everything is the way you want.
The interface in Android Auto is simple, with a switch for each of the devices, as well as a settings button, for configuring notifications. So this integration with SmartThings seems to fulfill its function and purpose well. In addition, the presence of notifications allows a better use of these devices from the car.
