The smartphone mirroring technology will join Apple CarPlay in 2020 Toyota USA models, along with some of the brand's cars in Europe.

Toyota USA has confirmed the 2020 Sequoia, Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner will get Android Auto capability.

In Europe, the privilege will also be extended to Aygo and Yaris buyers. Initially, the technology will only be available on newly-purchased vehicles, and Toyota hasn't confirmed whether it'll be standard-fit or an optional extra.

Apple CarPlay is already available in Toyota and Lexus models overseas, but privacy and safety concerns have held the company back from offering the Google equivalent.

Toyota's first Apple CarPlay compatible vehicle was the fifth-generation Avalon large sedan launched early in 2018.

While CarPlay support has since spread to other Toyota and Lexus models in the North American lineup, including the new Corolla hatch and Lexus UX crossover, it has yet to surface in Australia-bound cars.

Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay mirror supported smartphone apps and functions, such as navigation, music and podcast players, and phone connectivity, in a way that's simpler and easier to use when on the go.

Australia

Toyota has previously confirmed it's working on Apple CarPlay for Australia buyers, but had "nothing further to announce" in relation to other platforms.

We've contacted Toyota Australia for updated comment, and will update this story when it's available.
