One of the things that had us most skeptical with the birth of CarPlay and Android Auto last year, was having a car that isn’t compatible with your phone, or vice versa. Switching a car isn’t something you can do every day, and being forced to pick stick to a platform you don’t like just to use it in your car is also ridiculous. GM is one of the companies that has thought of this, and today we learn more of its support plans.

Just like we saw Cadillac and Chevrolet a few weeks ago, GM has now expanded its support for both CarPlay and Android Auto to brands like GMC and Buick as well. CarPlay support will arrive first, so if you’re in the market for a 2016 Buick LaCrosse and Regal or in that same manner a GMC Canyon, Sierra and YukonStarting, you should get some love from Apple’s platform early on. Android Auto support will show up later in the year, though no dates have been provided yet.

We should see more car manufacturers supporting either Android Auto or CarPlay in 2016, but we’re not sure if these will be a smart as GM in providing support for both platforms on the same vehicle.
