Design-wise، Android Auto is perhaps one of Google's most neglected projects، but that changes now. The company is bringing a much-needed visual overhaul to the in-car platform، updating not only its looks but also its functions. The updates are due this summer، according to the Technical Times.
Google revealed the improved look at its IO developer conference. The most significant change might be the Android Auto's new overall aesthetic، which now boast a dark theme، new typefaces، and color accents to make it easier for drivers to get more information at a glance.
The New Android Auto This new iteration of Android Auto also features improved notifications. Drivers can choose to view، listen، and respond to messages more easily than before. But in all، engineers have retooled the whole interface to make the experience of using it more seamless. It should، for example، require fewer taps to get things done or access a particular function.
New Nav Bar The highlight here is the persistent navigation bar at the bottom of the user interface. Rather than displaying static white buttons over a black background، the new version lets apps take over a section of the navigation bar، which allows drivers more granular control without them requiring to switch to the full app. Edited by Ahmed Moamar
