Google has rolled out a redesigned driver assisting mobile app- Android Auto with default dark mode along with colourful accent and readable fonts to the app. With this Google thinks that it would fit better with the modern automotive interiors.
According to Rod Lopez, Product Manager, Android Auto, who wrote in a blog-pots on Monday, "We're evolving Android Auto's design to fit in better with your car's interior. The new app interface is built to help you get on the road faster, show more useful information at a glance and simplify common tasks while driving".
The Google Android Auto was launched in 2015 and was made to mirror features from Android devices to cars in-dash information and entertainment head unit. This redesign will aid users in seeing directions turn-by-turn even when they control other apps, allowing them to easily discover and start other apps that were compatible with Android Auto.
With the new notification centre, the Android Auto would display recent messages and calls at an accessable spot on the screen.
Lopez added, "If you have a car with a wider screen, 'Android Auto' now maximises your display to show you more information, like next-turn directions, playback controls and ongoing calls."
