Google is currently delivering certain improvements for vehicles with Android Auto and autos with Android Automotive infotainment systems, after all of the major hardware and software announcements at the I/O 2022 keynote. The most significant future improvement is a new UI for Android Auto, which will make it simpler to explore, manage media, and connect with people while driving, according to Google’s “What’s New with Android for Cars” session.

To suit the bigger displays in new automobiles, the business has made split-screen view common across all devices, allowing you to see directions, music, and texts all at once. That means you won’t have to go through a number of menus and settings to pause music or see a new message. Furthermore, Google is enhancing support for flexible layouts, which may better adapt to the expanding diversity of screens in new automobiles. Whether you have a sweeping extra-wide display on your dash or a towering portrait-oriented panel, the Android Auto UI can display all of your important information.

Meanwhile, the Google Assistant is improving contextual suggestions for things like answering missed calls, texting arrival times, and more to improve hands-free controls. Finally, Google is boosting your in-car entertainment options with expanded support for video streaming applications for owners of cars with Android Automotive systems (such as new Ford, Volvo, and other vehicles). Google revealed the ability to broadcast YouTube clips earlier this year at CES, and the Tubi TV and Epix Now applications will be added soon. Remember that you can only watch videos when your car is parked; don’t try to stream while driving. In the future, the business claims it wants to allow passengers to stream video from their phones to the vehicle’s built-in display, though no specific date has been set for when this would be accessible.
