Google details Android Auto makeover, split screen is the new normal


Among the many announcements at this year’s I/O conference, Google detailed a new look for Android Auto coming to all users starting in late summer. The big change is that the UI will now adapt to different car screen sizes and orientations with a default split-screen look. The goal is to give drivers quick and easy control over the three most used aspects of AA: maps, media controls, and messaging.

Different screen orientations, same controls

Google Assistant, notifications, and your app library will all be easily accessible on the cradle, and depending on whether your car has a portrait or widescreen car display, the cradle will be on the bottom or the side closest to the steering wheel. . Assistant will now bring suggested quick replies to conversations, including options to share your ETA with your contacts.

Cars with built-in Android Auto operating system, such as some of the newer models from Volvo, Ford and GMC, will get additional benefits when the car is parked. These include a web browser and the ability to watch videos from the YouTube, Tubi and Epix Now platforms on your car screen.
