‘YouTubeAuto’ brings YouTube playback to your Android Auto unit

Thanks to the recently-released unofficial ‘Aauto SDK,’ we’ve started to see more experimental apps being developed for Android Auto, like the tinyCam Beta that shows feeds from security cameras.

Google partially delays policy change for Android Wear apps scheduled for next week

In late August of last year, Google announced some updates to its Android Wear policy which would affect the requirements for an app to obtain an “Enhanced for Android Wear” badge.
