BMW recently released a new video showcasing the recently-updated BMW 5 Series running wireless Android Auto, roughly 6 months after announcing their plans to include support for Android users.

With that in place, BMW models running on Operating System 7.0 now support both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, both wirelessly.

As shown in the video, once the phone is paired to the car, no cables are required for Android Auto to run. Just place the phone in the Qi wireless charging pad and you’re good to go.

Thanks to its large 10.25-inch (or optional 12.3-inch) touchscreen infotainment display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay runs in widescreen mode, much like the Lexus RX and Mazda 3.
