Volkswagen's Other 'App Connect' Ad Showcases Android Auto [Video]
Just last week, you may have seen a Volkswagen advertisement running on most major television networks which showed Apple CarPlay being used by Hollywood actors, Michael Pena and Adam Scott. Well, the two are back again along with Christopher Mintz-Plasse ('McLovin' of Superbad fame) and this week it's their turn to show off Android Auto.
Watch the ad below, which ran multiple times during NFL games on Sunday...
Volkswagen interestingly calls Android Auto, 'App Connect', which is its own in-car infotainment system. App Connect offers CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity and is available on the latest Volkswagen vehicles as a premium package.
The ad shows the actors using Android Auto's various features like voice commands to play music, answering multiple calls, and getting directions to nearby businesses. The fine print suggests obeying traffic laws and to pay careful attention to the road without being distracted.
According to a graphic at the end of the ad, App Connect is 'Available on 11 models' although it doesn't mention which ones. The tech package should be an option on most of the latest Volkswagens.
Here's the ad...
