How to test the Android Auto beta to access its new features before everyone else

Last June, Google announced some of the new features that were coming to Android Auto for this summer, and now we know that from now on, the company wants to test some of the future developments on a small number of users before officially launching them for all the world. And for this, they have launched the new beta tester program.


With the launch of Android Auto Beta, beta testers will be able to help Google design an improved version of Android Auto by being able to send them comments with suggestions for Google to apply the improvements in their next versions before they reach the stable version of the application.

How to sign up for Android Auto Beta

If you want to test the next Android Auto news for your compatible mobile and car before anyone else, you can sign up for the Android Auto beta tester program right now. To do this, you just have to follow these steps:

  1. Access the page to participate in the Android Auto beta test.
  2. Select Become a tester.
  3. Open the Play Store and update the Android Auto app to the beta version.

From that moment on, you will be one of the first people to receive the new versions of Android Auto to test its future functions and improvements. Of course, Google reports that some beta tests may be less stable, so it is possible that some functions do not work correctly, which is the most normal when using a beta.

Google also asks that beta-testers not disclose or share the functions they are testing in their betas before they reach the general public in a stable way, but this is something that I doubt is respected.

With the launch of Android Auto Beta, Google also reminds us that we can also test the betas of Google Maps, Waze, the Google application, and the Google Messages application, compatible applications that, through their trial versions, will also add new features for test in Android Auto.
