Set up your car’s infotainment system

You can use Google apps and services like Assistant, Maps, and Play, built right into your car. When you sign in with your Google Account, you can set up Assistant, download apps, and navigate to personal locations like “Home” and “Work.” You can still drive the car and use some Google apps if you’re offline or signed out but some apps and features might not be available.

Make sure you sign in with your personal Google Account. These steps won’t work if you use an account through your work, school, or other organization. If you don’t have a Google Account, you can create one on a separate device.

Important: Settings vary by car manufacturer. For more info, reference your owner’s manual.

You need a car with Google apps and services built in. Learn which cars are compatible.
