CarPlay is fantastic. It’s quick, easy-to-use, and Siri integrates well to handle your directions, reminders, and everything else. CarPlay is being updated all of the time to run smoother, quicker and provide better (and safer) ways to control your music and more.
Android Auto (pictured above) works well, but it’s not as nice looking and quite a bit clunkier. You’ll also run into issues if you’re using a cheaper USB-C cable – Android Auto likes high-data capabilities, so opt for one that can handle 5Gbps transfer speeds or higher.
Google Assistant is incredibly smart, though, and handles all of my requests with less fuss than Siri would. I do like Android Auto, and Apple Music even works well with it, but I can’t deny that I miss CarPlay.
