Will Roon ARC be on Android Automotive?

It would be awesome if Roon could be available in cars running Android Automotive. Any plans to offer that? Polestar, Volvo, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Rivian, Maseratti, and Lucid, run on this OS.


Hell yes please

It is in beta now on the early access track.

Hi, I don’t believe your statement is correct ( unfortunately).
I don’t see Arc in my AA.
I do run RoonARC early Access and AA beta.
I believe the Roon Team have not yet issued their AA app to Google.

They’ve issued it but there’s been a version problem in the play store so the roon staff builds contain it but the public builds don’t.

Are there any plans to port the android app to android automotive? That would be very nice!

Yes it’s in early access all ready

Android automotive is different to android auto.
Automotive is the whole control system of the car.

Android Automotive OS
Android Automotive OS is an Android-based infotainment system that is built into vehicles. The car’s system is a standalone Android device that is optimized for driving. With Android Automotive OS, users install your app directly onto the car instead of their phones.

Didn’t know there was a different thing thanks.

I think a Volvo ev was the first to use it a while back.
Now it’s spreading
