Google to roll out new Android Auto interface


Google has updated the Android Auto in-car interface with a new look and improved navigation. The update is expected to be rolled out to compatible devices later this summer.

The update includes new fonts and colour accents which are claimed to improve visibility to the driver. The notification center is also updated and also shows recent calls, messages and alerts. Android Auto will also continue playing media and navigation app of the driver's choice without users having to restart them after connecting to the car. The navigation screen has also been revised allowing users to control both navigation and their music from the same screen. The software has been tweaked to accommodate various sizes of screens.

Android Auto is available in over 500 cars from 50 different manufacturers. It was first released in 2015.
