Android Auto gives you the opportunity to connect your smartphone to your car, and use it on your car infotainment of the vehicle the most useful applications, such as Google Maps, Spotify or WhatsApp.
No more sound notifications on Android Auto
However, until now, every time you received a notification on your smartphone, it was indicated by a beep in the speakers of your car. In the latest version of the Android Auto app there is finally an option to mute notifications.
It seems such a simple option, but that until now did not exist, arriving at version 5.0.500224. Even so, this functionality has not reached the perfection that it should demand when we are on the road.
Notifications will continue to appear on the screen
The truth is that driving requires that there be a minimum of distractions, and not receiving sound warnings is a good principle in this regard. However, notifications will continue to appear on the car’s screen until they’re ‘cleared’.
As noted by XDA Developers, several users have already received the update and complain that notifications are still on the screen, even with the sound off.
Even if it still has defects, this is the feature that users have been asking for a long time. Your music or navigation will no longer be interrupted, at that time when you start receiving several notifications. To start using the functionality, simply update to the version mentioned above.
