Breaking News : Android Auto Enters India and 17 More Countries
Soon after the Search app update and
Android April security update, Google on Wednesday tweeted a bunch of new countries where its Android Auto platform is now available.

The company's tweet from the official Android account now says that Android Auto has finally entered 18 new countries including India, Argentina, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Russia, Switzerland, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Full speed ahead. ? #AndroidAuto is now available in 18 new countries: ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? , plus ?? too!
-- Android (@Android) April 4, 2016

It is worth mentioning that Android Auto is already available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the US, taking the total to 29. The company also updated Android Auto in the meanwhile, bringing it to v1.6.

The latest build brings several features (via Android Police), including improved phone-car connection reliability, as well as the ability to browse your music collection without lockouts while the vehicle is stopped - essentially bringing in a more detailed music collection interface that's . The publication reports that despite the update, the features are not reflecting on the front end - giving rise to speculation that a Google Play Services update is required to finally enable the new features.
The rollout to India with country-specific features should see increased adoption by local and international manufacturers of in-dash infotainment systems and cars. So far, few domestic car manufacturers have made their plans clear on the adoption.

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd last year plans to bring Android Auto in its vehicles . The technology, which links smart phones and tablets with an in-vehicle infotainment system, will be available in Mahindra's sports utility vehicles XUV 500 and Scorpio as well as future platforms.
