Wade through that busy group chat as Google assistant helps Android Auto summarize texts

What you need to know

  • An APK deep dive showcases a new AI summary feature for Android Auto backed by Google Assistant.
  • When the AI deems a conversation “busy,” such as a group chat, it will summarize the multitude of texts instead of spamming drivers with its reading.
  • Google has consistently brought AI-backed summaries to its app ecosystem, beginning with generative AI features in Gmail and more in the Recorder app.

Google is seemingly working on a new AI-Assistant feature for drivers to help them stay in the loop safely.

In a 9to5Google APK deep dive, Android Auto seems primed to gain an “Assistant summarize your busy conversations” feature. The code shows this feature will potentially involve  SMS and RCS text messages from Google Messages.
