The company is using the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology to enable this feature for its users. “And for NFC-enabled car models, it’s as easy as tapping your phone on the car door to unlock it. Since it’s all digital, you can also securely and remotely share your car key with friends and family if they need to borrow your car,” Google wrote in a blog post.

Google said that this feature will be available on select Pixel and Galaxy smartphones later this year. It is also working with BMW and other carmakers to bring this feature to their upcoming cars.
