Although a bunch of cars now come with advanced navigation systems, these can rarely beat the simplicity and expansibility of Android Auto. Sadly, though, Google's in-car service isn't globally available, leaving many users unable to properly use their favorite services from their ride's dashboard. Thankfully, Android Auto is expanding to 36 more countries, making it seamless to get directions, play music, and interact with Assistant, thanks to native integration with your car's infotainment system.
Not all countries are created equal when it comes to the Google Play Store, but now developers in three new countries can start feeling like first class citizens again. If you develop apps or games for Android and you live in Guatemala, Moldova, or Paraguay, today brings some happy news for you. Previously, you were able to register on the Play Console and distribute free apps, but now you can also register for a merchant account and sell paid apps and in-app purchases to get some revenue for your work.
