What you need to know about Android Auto

Written by

What we know so far about Android in your car

Following up on the announcement of the Open Automotive Alliance in January, Google took the stage at I/O 2014 to introduce just how it's going to be getting inside your car. Android Auto is its name and bringing Android apps and services to your car is its game.

Google a few moons back promised its YouTube creators - basically anyone and everyone who's got a channel to worry about on YouTube - a new app for managing said channel. Today, that app is live.

YouTube Creator Studio gives you an easy app from which you can see your analytics, edit video information and descriptions, and reply to comments. (Seriously, though, stay out of the YouTube comments.) You'll also get push notifications by default.

Android L takes the design of this operating system in a different direction, and nowhere is that more apparent right when you start using it than in the lockscreen and notification area.

The now-familiar Google Now card paradigm is alive and well throughout the interface of Android L, taken to the next level with the new ideas and colors present in the Material Design language that the software is built on.

Android: You know the feeling: you're somewhere quiet and your ringtone is too loud, or you're in a crowd and it's too quiet.

Intelligent Ringer addresses this problem by changing ringtone volume according to the level of ambient noise.

A new Kickstarter campaign has begun to raise funds for Console OS, a fork of Android that's designed to run on Intel-based PCs that normally use Windows.

While the idea of running Android on a PC originally designed for Windows is nothing new, the team at Mobile Media Ventures claims their Console OS ha been developed so that it works well on all kinds of Intel PCs.

Android: Hunting for a lost phone can be a nightmare, particularly if you're on your own and can't call it. Whistle Phone Finder is a free Android app that helps you to locate a misplaced handset by whistling.

The obvious thing to do when you can't find your phone is to give it a call. But this may not be an option if you are alone, or if your phone is in silent mode.
