SEOUL -- South Korea's Hyundai Motor said Thursday that it has made Google's smartphone integration system standard on all vehicles sold domestically, effective immediately.

The Android Auto software allows a driver to access smartphone features through the dashboard interface once the phone is connected with a USB wire. For example, one can play music, look up the weather or turn on navigation through artificial intelligence voice activation.
