In case you missed the Google APK update yesterday, Google has formalized several new features in Android Auto today. The preview of the message and the new multimedia user interface of the disassembly are on the program, but Google has also made some changes to the multimedia search and group messaging in the car. As always, Google claims to have worked to add more convenient features without sacrificing security. I use Android Auto updated for a week and, although it 's a minor update, there are some interesting additions.
The multimedia interface is changing in many ways, the most obvious being the new layout of the album art. There is now a small vignette of art next to the artist and information about the song – that is what you can see above. The navigation experience is also different now. The up arrow opens a more visual user interface for scrolling through multimedia options, but there is still a side navigation menu in this interface. The option you select in the navigation menu determines which set of suggestions appears in the navigation user interface.
Searching for music with Assistant has come with its share of inconvenience since its launch. The most important problem is that the wizard can not always analyze unusual names or understand if you are asking for a particular song or album. The new search feature should help here. When you ask the wizard to read something, you get a new item "Search Results" in the above navigation panel. Note: The new navigation features require updates to existing apps in Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Play Music.
On the messaging side, you get previews of optional messages in the automatic user interface. However, you must enable this feature in the settings. Since Google wants to limit distractions, these previews are only displayed (on the Home screen and in the pop-up window) when the car is stopped. These are just the first 10 words, so it will not take you long to read them. You can also manage more types of messages in Android Auto with this update. Google has added support for MMS, RCS and group messaging. Once again, developers need to take advantage of these features. Hangouts and Whatsapp are apparently already installed.
The latest Android Auto update is being rolled out in the Play Store. However, you can download the latest version of APK Mirror yet.
