Android Auto is pretty useful when you’re driving, minimizing distractions and making it safer to use certain key apps. But that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be improved, and it appears Google has three big Android Auto updates in the works.
The updates are hinted at in the latest build of the Android Auto beta (via Auto Evolution), with a change to the app’s UI being the most notable new feature. And with one of Android’s best features, customization, also set to be included, the new version of the app looks like offering some major improvements all round.
The biggest change coming to Android Auto appears to be a new UI, codenamed Coolwalk. Specifically, this is a button that’s been placed on Android Auto’s navigation bar, and which launches a car-friendly version of Android’s notification center.
