Google Android Auto gets new interface

by May 7, 2019 0 comments

When you’re in the driver’s seat, there’s a lot to think about, from getting directions to your next destination to staying connected on the go. Google Android Auto that started five years ago has now expanded to support more than 500 car models from 50 different brands, and the company isn’t pumping the brakes there!

Today, Google Android Auto is getting a new design which will be rolled to all Android Auto compatible cars later this year. The new interface is built to help you get on the road faster, show more useful information at a glance and simplify common tasks while driving.

As soon as you start your car, Android Auto will continue playing your media and show your navigation app of choice. Simply tap on a suggested location or say ‘Hey Google’ to navigate to a new place.

With the new navigation bar, stay on top of your apps, as you’ll be able to see your turn-by-turn directions and control your apps and phone on the same screen. With the new navigation bar, you’ll be able to easily control your apps with one tap. Get turn-by-turn directions, rewind your podcast or take incoming call all on the same screen.

The new notification centre shows recent calls, messages and alerts, so you can choose to view, listen and respond at a time that’s convenient and safe for you. The Google Android Auto is getting a new colour palette that’s easy on the eyes.

‘We’re evolving Android Auto’s design to fit in better with your car’s interior. A dark theme, coupled with colourful accents and easier to read fonts, also helps improve visibility,’ the company said in a statement.

If you have a car with a wider screen, Google Android Auto now maximises your display to show you more information, like next-turn directions, playback controls and ongoing calls.
