Microsoft plans to add support for Teams on Android Auto in February, expanding the platform beyond media and navigation apps.
According to the Microsoft 365 plan, Microsoft Teams will soon be available on Google’s Android Auto platform. That implies that if your car has Android Auto, you’ll soon be able to participate in video meetings and make phone calls while driving.
Google first announced Teams’ debut on Android Auto in May at I/O 2023. However, the business did not specify when this might happen. Fast forward to now, and Teams users have about a month to enjoy the tranquility of their car until it invades their infotainment head unit.

Although the app is scheduled to launch next month, Microsoft is keeping us in the dark about the specifics. All it says is that you may “join meetings and make calls” directly from the calendar screen on your head unit.
The software behemoth is quiet on whether Teams on Android Auto will play nice with messaging. Android Auto was originally focused on media and navigation, but things have changed. Last year, Google decided to shake things up by introducing smart home and weather applications to its platform.
Since then, several of your favorite video conferencing providers, including as Zoom, launched an Android Auto app in September 2023, and Webex followed suit the same week. The Weather Channel and YouTube have joined the Android Auto bandwagon. In addition, the platform provides passengers with games, such as a Solitaire version, to help them pass the time during their dull ride.
Android Auto and Android Automotive have been on a roll as vehicle makers have jumped on the Google bandwagon during the last year. According to Google, a staggering 200 million automobiles currently have Android Auto integration.
