To support building features such as an in-app digital assistant, the Android for Cars App Library now lets you use the car’s microphone to record voice input from the driver.
When recording is in progress, an indicator appears on the screen. The recording is sent directly to the app (not saved within the library) for processing and follow-up actions.
