They allow us to listen to music, browse the web, watch TV and even control the configuration of our chosen mode of transport without having to visit a mechanic, but how do we know that all of our data is not being saved and secretly sent to advertisers and insurers?

Four new commercials have been released by Google demonstrating Android’s seamless experience across multiple form factors. After all, the platform’s tagline is “Be together.

These are commercials you will definitely watch when airing on television rather than skipping over with a DVR.
