Android Auto, which allows you to connect your Android phone to your car display, has a new experience that is rolling out to everyone starting today. First previewed at Google I/O, the design updates and feature improvements will give you a more personal, easy-to-use experience from behind the wheel.
The new design prioritizes three important goals for drivers: navigating where you’re going, communicating with friends and family, and playing your music or podcasts. Maps is now closer to the driver’s seat so that you can see where you’re going at a glance. The new media card includes the best of Material You to feature your favorite album art, and the added quick launcher lets you quickly access recently-used apps. Also, because Android Auto is compatible with all major carmarkers, the split screen layout is also adaptable to different screen sizes, so it looks great whether your car has a widescreen, portrait or another size screen.
