Checking the weather before you head out can be useful if you need to know if you should bring a coat or an umbrella. But the weather can sometimes be unpredictable and things could change suddenly.
This can be important when you’re on the road, which is why if you use Android Auto, you might be interested to learn that Google has announced some updates to the platform. One of those updates comes in the form of better weather predictions that can help you make more informed decisions even when you’re driving. According to Google:
“For example, if an unexpected rainstorm interrupts your trip, you will soon be able to download The Weather Channel app from Google Play on cars with Google built-in. The Weather Channel, the world’s most accurate weather forecaster, allows drivers to always stay up-to-date on changing weather conditions with hourly forecasts, follow-me alerting and ‘Trip View’ radar, helping keep drivers aware of the conditions ahead.”
If you think that this could be a feature that might come in handy for an upcoming road trip, or if you’re someone who’s on the road quite a bit, then this is an update that you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
