Google now allows third-party developers to publish more types of apps in the Android Auto category on Google Play. The app types are navigation, parking and charging apps, which will hopefully mean a little more variety in the Play Store.
“Today, we’re thrilled to announce that you can publish your Android Auto navigation, parking, and charging apps to production! We’ve been hard at work stabilizing the library, Android Auto, and the publishing process to reach this milestone. Publishing to production enables drivers to use your Android Auto app on their car screen without needing to sign up for a beta program.“
Those who want to publish their apps there, however, must follow Google’s guidelines very carefully as Google does not want apps that distract the driver too much.
