The Automatic app for Android has only been available in Google Play for a few weeks, even so, has still been a beta release for the most part. Today, Automatic for Android officially hits version 1.0 and adds two new awesome features in the process — Crash Alert and Do Not Disturb.
Do Not Disturb is an Android exclusive and won't be found on the iOS version. The DnD feature allows you to silence your phone completely when driving, preventing it from distracting you while you're on the road. It even goes so far as to send a text message if anyone calls you, letting them know that you're driving. When you're stopped, you still have full access to the phone as well.
The second big feature — Crash Alert — has been available on the iOS version for a while, but now it's in full swing on Android as well. The feature is still in beta, but when enabled, it will automatically alert the authorities and loved ones should you be in a crash.
Helping people drive safer is a big part of our mission. Crash Alert, now available for both iOS and Android, can detect serious crashes and notify local authorities with your location, even if you can't. An Automatic agent will even stay on the line with you until help arrives and contact your loved ones to let them know what's happened.
Automatic for Android is totally free, though you'll need to purchase and Automatic Link to be able to use it at all, and that will set you back $99.
