Android Auto allows to attend Zoom, Cisco conference calls
San Francisco: Drivers with vehicles equipped with Google's Android Auto will now be able to attend Zoom and WebEx by Cisco audio-only conference calls.
"Beginning today, WebEx by Cisco and Zoom are both rolling out on Android Auto with audio-only capability, introducing a whole new category of apps," Google said in a blogpost on Wednesday.
"We’re taking the next step by making it easy and safe for you to quickly join scheduled meetings and conference calls from your car display, so you won’t have to go fumbling for your phone," it added. Google first announced the new conferencing features in May at its I/O conference as part of its push into the automotive market via Android Auto and Google built-in.
Along with this, the company expanded video apps in cars with Google built-in to keep users entertained while parked.
