Maps on Android Auto is getting a new layout and Material makeover

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

When you're hopping into your car and starting up navigation with Google Maps, you might be in for a surprise as the UI is getting some pretty significant changes. This isn't just about adding rounded corners or tweaking some colors, a few parts of the UI have been moved around and behave a bit differently, so your muscle memory might work against you for a little while as you get adjusted.

Driving Mode on the Pixel 3 can automatically turn on Android Auto

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

It's no secret that driving and cellphones don't mix. On the Pixel 2, users can create a rule for automatically engaging Do Not Disturb. On the Pixel 3, there's a new option to open Android Auto automatically with Driving Mode.

Available exclusively on the Pixel 3 lineup, Driving Mode gives the familiar option for turning on Do Not Disturb, but also the new ability to 'Open Android Auto.' Using the latter, users can choose how they would like the phone to decide when to engage the car system – either when the device connects to Bluetooth or when driving is detected based on traveling speed.

Jaguar and Land Rover confirm 2019 vehicles will get Android Auto

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Most automakers moved surprisingly fast to adopt Android Auto (and CarPlay) over the last couple years. That's in spite of the fact that Android Auto makes it harder to sell spendy navigation-enabled infotainment upgrades. Still, it's taken some longer than others to come around. Toyota is expected to roll out Android Auto next year, and now we have confirmation that both Jaguar and Land Rover will follow suit.

According to a spokesperson who communicated with MacRumors, Jaguar and Land Rover will have offer Android Auto and CarPlay on vehicles with the InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo infotainment systems.

Toyota reportedly agrees to support Android Auto

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Toyota is one of the few car major manufacturers that have refused to add support for Android Auto, along with BMW, MINI, and Lexus. However, that might finally be changing. According to Bloomberg, Toyota has reached an agreement with Google that may be officially announced as soon as October.

Toyota has reportedly agreed to include Android Auto in its vehicles, after the company announced support for Apple CarPlay in January. It's not clear at this time which vehicles will have Android Auto, or which (if any) existing models will receive a software update enabling the feature.

Google just struck a deal with a major auto alliance to run Android on millions of future cars

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Google's been at work on infiltrating the automotive industry for a long time. It's managed to wedge its foot firmly in the door with Android Auto, which runs on a wide range of in-market cars from popular brands — but that was never the ultimate goal. After all, Android Auto essentially just mirrors features from an Android device to car's infotainment system, it's not Android running on a car. The latter, more desirable implementation is (somewhat confusingly) called Android Automotive.

Google Podcasts finally starts rolling out Cast support

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Google Podcasts received a fair amount of criticism at launch for a variety of valid reasons, but the biggest issues stemmed from a lack of support across Google's ecosystem. The app, somewhat absurdly, launched without proper Android Auto or Cast support — and offered little else to recommend it, including no option for creating podcast playlists. Now, after addressing the Android Auto issue, the app is beginning to roll out support for Cast.

Android Auto is now available on more than 500 car models and head units

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

Google has been consistently updating its Android Auto compatibility lists every few weeks for quite some time now. Back in October of last year, the amount of car models and head units with Android Auto crossed 400, which is no small feat. Almost a year later, that figure has grown by another hundred.

When Android Auto hit the aforementioned 400 figure 11 months ago, Apple listed CarPlay as being available on over 200 cars.

When I reviewed it back in 2015, I loved a lot of its features, but I eventually had to give up on it because it wasn't compatible with many other things I often use: Android Auto, Chromecast, and Google Home.
