    Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi have announced that they have partnered with technology giant Google to empower their models with Android. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has thus, gone ahead doing what several auto majors are avoiding and trying to find their own solutions rather than partner with tech giants for advanced connectivity. The Franco-Japanese auto alliance has said that its partnership with Alphabet Inc.’s Google will enable its vehicle models to use the Android operating system in the dashboards.

    The Renault-Nisan-Mitsubishi has also said that its technology partnership with Google will make its vehicles among the first models to be using Google’s software run the infotainment unit, mapping, navigation and an array of other different apps installed in the vehicle.

    Currently, most of the auto manufacturers offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support into their car’s dashboard, which can be availed only by plugging in a smartphone. A limited number of apps are offered in the vehicles’ touchscreen display at present. Thus, the modern cars in the current market do not have Android or Apple softwares directly pre-installed in the dashboard, and that’s how the future Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi cars will be different for the others.
