Session 1: Have a media app and want to support Android Automotive, or the Google Assistant's driving mode, but worry about how much work it will be? Wonder no longer.

We'll dig into the MediaSession extension for ExoPlayer and see how it can make supporting these, and my other surfaces, work with ease. After the talk you'll understand how to make sure millions of drivers are able to use your app to listen to great music.

Session 2: To improve user privacy, Android Q adds additional privacy features. This talk will cover recommended best practices for permissions, device identifiers, app launching, notifications, and foreground services.
