What You Will Learn

Prerequisites and Requirements

To get the most out of this course, you should have prior experience developing Android apps. If you lack this experience, please take Developing Android Apps prior to enrolling in this one. We also recommend taking Advanced Android App Development and Google Play services.

To follow along with course activities, you must have access to the latest release of Android Studio.

We share code through Github, so you must be familiar with using Github to access code. Take our course on Using Git and Github if you lack this background.

See theTechnology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

If you're already an Android developer, you're only a few extensions away from having your existing Media or Messaging app work on Android Auto as well. Take this course to learn how easy it is to bring your existing app to the car.
