Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) struck a deal with Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi

Back at I/O 2018, Google put an Android Automotive setup on a RAM 1500 pickup that completely replaced the vehicle’s normal stock interface. You’ve probably used or at least heard of Android Auto which mirrors apps from an Android device to the car’s screen.

However, it’s not actually full Android running on a car. Yesterday, Google just struck a deal with Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi to run Android-powered infotainment systems—like the one on the RAM 1500 pickup—starting in 2021.

This isn’t your typical Android Auto. Google calls it “Android Automotive.” These new systems will offer apps through the Play Store, navigation through Google Maps, and voice commands through the Google Assistant. It’ll include support for all the car’s various functions like climate controls. It’ll be quite similar to something like Tesla’s in-car software.

Google will have access to everything generated by its in-car apps after gaining permission from the user. The systems will still be compatible with mobile devices using Apple CarPlay.

Google has been trying to get into the car space for quite a while. Through Google I/O 2016 and 2018, Google’s demonstrated a lot that it can do with Android Automotive. However, car companies see Google and other tech giants as potential competitors who may mine user data for profit. Many automakers like Mercedes-Benz and BMW create their own infotainment systems instead.
