Android Auto receives major update to its user interface

After all the amazing hardware and software announcements at Google I/O 2022 , the company is adding improvements to Android Auto.


Google has shared some updates for cars with Android Auto and vehicles with Android -based infotainment systems .

On its second consecutive day of the Google I/O 2022 event , the company announced a major change: a new user interface focused on facilitating navigation, media control and communication while driving.

To accommodate the larger screens in new cars,  Google is making split-screen view standard across all devices so you can see addresses, music, and text at the same time. This means that you will be able to view a message without having to navigate through many settings.

Improvements for Android Auto

Additionally, Google is improving support for responsive layouts that can more easily fit the growing variety of screens in new cars.

Meanwhile, to improve hands-free controls, Google Assistant offers better contextual suggestions for actions like returning missed calls, sending a text and more.

Google is also expanding its in-car entertainment options with greater support for streaming video apps .
