After some time in standby, Google has finally released a major upgrade to the look and feel of Android Auto, making the system much more practical, productive and simple.
Android Auto is the operating system developed by Google with the driving experience of users in mind. With more than 500 models of various brands, it is increasingly becoming one of the leading car operating systems.
The update has started to be available today for all cars that have integrated Android Auto, thus anticipating the start of Google I / O. Which will start today, and will have a dedicated car operating system session – "What's New with Android for Cars"
New look offers a less distracting driving experience
The changes implemented in Android Auto are intended to minimize distractions while users are driving. As well as improving the reading of the information displayed on the screen, which was achieved by implementing Dark Mode.
With the new update, users will have more information available on one screen to avoid unnecessary screen interactions. In addition, they can finally activate directions'turn-by-turn ' while using other applications. For example, in the case of Spotify, while navigating using Google Maps, you will have access to a music service control bar at the bottom of the screen.
In addition, all interaction with Google Assistant, which remains accessible through the voice command "Ok, Google", has also been improved. Users can perform a large number of actions without ever having to interact with the screen, which is the most effective method to avoid distractions.
Recalling that a dedicated Android Auto session will take place during Google I / O, we will be sure to hear about the future of this operating system. So stay tuned!
