Android Auto with Samsung SmartThings
One of the great advantages of having this facility is that you can control all your applications from your dashboard. So you no longer have to take your smartphone out of your pocket while driving (which of course is not safe at all) and you have everything at hand in an overview.
From now on a new support will be added: Samsung SmartThings. Android Auto offers the option of using Samsung’s smart home devices smart home system to operate and smart home scenarios to activate.
What can you do with this support?
On Twitter Joe Kester – better known as WinDroidGuy on the social media platform – reports that the integration of SmartThings with Android Auto is now officially live. Although we can only operate six smart home devices, there seems to be a good basis.

Control your SmartThings smart home from the car
With the new support you can therefore control smart home devices that are linked with Samsung SmartThings from your car, provided you use Android Auto of course.
