How Android Auto uses AI to summarize incoming text conversations

When the Samsung Galaxy S24 launched last month, it was packed with AI-powered features like Magic Editor, Circle to Search, and live language translation.

At the same time, Google announced several new AI features for the Assistant, including the ability to summarize long messages and group chats when connected to Android Auto.

This feature hasn’t officially rolled out yet, but you can get a better look at how it works thanks to new support documentation on the Google Community Help page.

First, Google is addressing significant privacy concerns, explaining that the Assistant will not record messages or summaries, and that interactions will not be used to train language models at scale. However, the company acknowledged that because AI is used to create the news summaries, errors may occur.

Once this feature is available, you will need to sign up to use it. This can be done in the Android Auto settings or the notifications menu in the classic settings panel, and you can disable this feature at any time.

You also have the option to enable this feature the first time you receive a message longer than 40 words while connected to Android Auto.

What types of messages does this feature summarize? Google summarizes your message when you receive a long message from one person, or when you receive multiple messages in a row from one sender or group text. , explained that tapping “Play aloud” will combine those messages. Otherwise, the company says, your messages will be read without being summarized by the AI. If you receive multiple messages from multiple conversations, they are read individually.

In the example provided by Google, a contact sends a long message asking about dinner plans. Instead of reading the entire message, Android Auto just displays “Here is the summary: Brianna asked if you wanted to have Thai for dinner and if you were still able to make it.” Several quick response answers are provided.

There is no information on when this feature will be introduced, but given the support documentation already exists, it should be in the not-too-distant future.
