Why does not default CarPlay bring visual-based apps?
It is obvious that we have to pay our 100% focus on the roads while we are on the driving seat. We can’t eye on anything else which distracts us as a driver. Considering these safety matters, the Apple CarPlay developers have not allowed any visual-based app like Youtube, Facebook, Videos, Photos, Netflix, Games, etc on your CarPlay.
Possibility for using visual-based apps
There are some situations where you spend minutes in traffic, sometimes you may happen to wait in the car for someone, etc. So in those scenarios, when you are not driving, you can enjoy some visual contents just keeping the car started. Moreover, if you are traveling with others, they can enjoy videos throughout the journey.
