While on the go, it is a challenge to stay connected with your co-workers or loved ones. If there are emergency calls or work-related issues that you need to deal with immediately, Android Auto makes it easier for you to communicate with others.

Android Auto can link Skype to your car so you can see Skype messages on your car’s screen. You can send a response to these SMS or text messages through your voice commands. Unfortunately, the drawback of the new feature is it does not allow you to make or receive voice or video calls from your car. Still, it lets you stay connected even when you are on the road.
