Android Auto has the advantage of being easily updated because the software resides mostly on the smartphone rather than the car or head unit. The latest update to Android Auto has popped up on Google Play and while there aren’t many changes, it’s still a pretty important one.
The biggest change is to the home screen. The navigation card now shows your next turn and the music card shows a play/pause button, meaning you and see and do more without pressing buttons. In a car, not being distracted with a screen is a big matter of safety.
There is also bigger cards, a small change to the color scheme, and a new background. While it’s not a huge update, I think it’s an important one. If you’re using Android Auto, update the app through the Play Store!
