AutoZen is a new application that seeks to be the replacement for Android Auto, especially for those users who do not have the vehicle operating system in their car. AutoZone is a complete, customizable app, it works much like Android Auto and Allows you to use vital smartphone actions without taking your eyes off the road.
Google introduced Android Auto in 2014 as a comfortable and safe way to use certain functions of the mobile phone in the car, all from the vehicle console while it was connected to the smartphone. Then the independent app was enabled so that anyone could use Android Auto without the need for their car to be compatible with the operating system for connected vehicles. But what if you want to use your mobile in the car without the official Google app? There are other ways, like the new AutoZen alternative.
