Android Auto Voice Commands Every Driver Needs To Know
Phone Calls
To make a phone call with Android Auto, hold the voice button on your steering wheel and say "Call" followed by the name of the person you want to contact.
To send a text with Android Auto, hold down the voice command option on your steering wheel, then say "Send a message" or "Text," followed by the name of the person.
From there, you'll say your message out loud, and it'll be converted from voice to text. You'll want to speak as clearly as possible so the words convert correctly.
While using a music app like Apple Music or Spotify alongside your Google Assistant, you can change songs, play certain artists, or turn off music completely.
It's very simple. All you have to do is hold down the voice button and ask it to play a song. You might have to specify between music apps if you're subscribed to a few.
To use maps with Android Auto, you can simply punch in some directions before you get going. To do this via voice command, just say "Take me to" and then the destination.
You can also use the voice button and ask Android Auto for news updates. You can get lots of different updates, such as catching up on local news, sports, or even the weather.
