Audi is an award-winning luxury car brand known for its innovative vehicle designs and cutting edge high tech features. This makes it no surprise that Audi vehicles often feature technology like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are integrations that allow you to access certain features, capabilities, and apps on your smartphone through your infotainment touchscreen — the MMI® display on your Audi. You can then control these features and apps via your MMI® controller or voice control system.

Let’s take a look at how exactly Audi drivers benefit from Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

Benefits of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

Hands-free calls and text messages

Texting or calling on your phone can be dangerous while you’re driving. But not with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for Audi. Thanks to this technology, you can make calls, have your text messages or voicemails read out loud, and write text messages without taking your hands off the wheel. 

Note that specific features may depend on your smartphone’s capabilities and voice control setup.

GPS navigation app access

GPS navigation has become an essential part of everyday driving. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ make this easy by allowing you to access the navigation system you use on your phone via your MMI® display. This means that you don’t have to worry about reprogramming your saved settings or locations every time you upgrade to a new Audi vehicle.

Access music and playlists

Your road trips won’t be complete without the right playlist. So download your favorite songs and create new playlists on your phone — you’ll be able to easily access them via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ on your Audi vehicle.
