Building Hybrid Radio in Android Automotive OS
Since the start of the year, Radioplayer has been working on a project to build our hybrid reference radio in Google’s Android Automotive Operating System. We’ve seen that the standard broadcast radio user interface in Android Automotive is currently poor, a list of FM frequencies, no station names, no station logos, no now-playing information. So at the same time as working on hybrid capability we’ve also developed a great user interface within Google’s template guidelines which we hope will demonstrate what can be done.
As well as demonstrating the Worldwide Radioplayer API powering a great user interface in Android Automotive our aim is to ensure hybrid radio capability is baked into the AOSP core source code and available to everyone.
