These new Android-powered infotainment systems will offer apps through the Play Store, navigation through Google Maps, and voice commands via Google Assistant.

Google Assistant through Android Auto can find out search information, which will be read out to you through your in-car sound system, and even be used to tell you your petrol levels or lock your doors if your vehicle supports that feature.

Announce technology partnership to embed Android operating system in Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance vehicles.

Android fans rejoice! The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has just signed a multi-year deal with Google that'll have the global tech giant producing "intelligent infotainment systems" for the three vehicle manufacturers starting in 2021. Each brand under the alliance will be able to craft its own unique interface and include specific features via a common operating system.

In 2017, Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi sold a combined 10.6 million vehicles in over 200 markets worldwide.

The infotainment partnership is also part of the Alliance move to equip more vehicles with connectivity and cloud-based services as part of its 2022 mid-term plan. The plan also involves the launch of 12 new zero-emission electric vehicles, new autonomous-driving technologies and the ongoing rollout of the Alliance Intelligent Cloud. Called the Alliance Intelligent Cloud, the infotainment systems will offer secure connectivity and a platform for data management.

"With the integration of the Android platform into our infotainment systems, we are adding a new level of intelligence to our connected vehicles". You can now use "OK Google" to perform many different in-car activities.

"In the future, the Google Assistant, which employs Google's leading AI technology, can become the main way customers interact with their vehicles, hands-free", Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi's Global VP of connected vehicles Kal Mos said in a statement.

The company announced that Assistant support has begun rolling out to Android TV and Android Auto in Australia from this week, so expect to see both apps update with voice support in the coming days - whether it's in your vehicle, on your Android smartphone, or on your TV.
