Slacker Radio adds support for Android Auto
Android Auto continues patiently driving itself into the market. It will take some time for consumers to completely adopt the new platform, as they would need to invest into it by purchasing a whole new car or vehicle entertainment system. The Android Auto era is coming, though, and developers know this. App support for Android Auto grows slowly, but very surely, and the latest to join the bandwagon is Slacker Radio.
With the latest update, Slacker Radio makes sure to add support for Android Auto, offering a vehicle-optimized service worthy of taking a ride with you during your commutes. In addition, the Slacker Radio What’s New section goes on to mention the team has also been busy squashing bugs. Some of these include issues with Facebook sharing and live stations playback, among other things.
If you haven’t tried Slacker Radio and have an Android Auto-capable car, now is your chance to give it a run. The application is known for its radio stations, which are carefully curated by Slacker Radio’s team. They have hundreds of stations available, and you can go ahead and create your very own, just in case none of these tickle your fancy. They have “millions of songs” available, so there will definitely be a tune or two you will like.
As for Android Auto – we know it’s hard to just go out and see what this new driving-optimized platform is like. If you are wondering whether your next vehicle should be touting Google’s entertainment system or not, just take a look at our Android Auto review with the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Now, if you do have an Andorid Auto-touting vehicle, please hit the comments and let us know how you are liking the new Slacker experience!
