    Saw a friend recently who just happens to have the same car as me. He demonstrated Apple's Car Play on his car's entertainment system. It's basically an app that allows you to use all of the iPhone's apps on your car's screen. It worked brilliantly.

    I just wondered if there's anything similar available for Android? I have a Samsung S7 Edge.

    It would really have more to do with the hand's free system in the car than what's on the phone.

    Please tell me that your friend wasn't playing Angry Birds while driving. ;)

    Ha ha - no, don't worry. What he could do was send texts and e-mails via speech, which was impressive. I just wondered if there was an Android equivalent. If not, there probably should be.

    As I said, it depends more on the car than on the platform and if it's supported. Android does indeed offer the equivalent functionality.



    If it's available on your car.
