Google's Android Auto interface for cars has quite a reach, and works very well, but it's about to get a lot better with Google Assistant being pushed out to head units in the United States this week. "It's been an exciting year to see the platform expand to new languages and devices and to see what [third-party developers have] created". These actions can span a range of wide capabilities from language translation to online purchasing to games for kids and much more.

There's no announcement on global expansion of the Assistant for Android Auto as yet, but it shouldn't be too far away once Google gets some solid install info from the United States users.

"There's a whole crowd of people who wear their headphones throughout the day and this has kind of enabled them to do their messaging and notifications without having to pull their phone out", Google Assistant VP Scott Huffman told VentureBeat in an interview. They say it is now available on more than 400 million devices.
