The new Android Auto will refine and refine the user experience, but it will also lose a vital function for drivers. A decision, that of Google, which surprises and which could perhaps be revised in the not too distant future.
For all motorists who have tried Android Auto, the functions included in the service have become almost indispensable for their travels. In fact, the software developed by Google contains unique and useful functions for the travel experience, such as the music player or the navigator directly connected to the smartphone and therefore containing the information from Google Maps. In addition to these functions useful for travel, there are also applications that those in the car, on the passenger side, can use to pass the time or to search for useful information. The device is a kind of car tablet that is fully compatible with smartphones using the same software. There are obviously versions that are compatible with iPhones thanks to the software Apple CarPlay and which perform the same functions.
For those who have never had the opportunity to try such a device, it is enough to know that it is what has replaced the classic car radios, since it is used to switch between the various stations, but also to listen to music from the smartphone or from a key that you have properly loaded for travel. Similar systems are now implemented in almost all new generation cars and if by chance you still have old car models it is possible to install car radios that are compatible with both the Google than with that Apple, according to your needs. The buttons are replaced by the touch screen and in addition to the radio there are some useful applications that allow you to set aside the phone but be able to use all its functions even when you are on the road.
Android Auto, the Coolwalk version is in beta stage
In recent months, Google is working to provide Android Auto owners with a new graphical interface that is more functional and easier to use. the goal of the technology company is to provide users with graphics that are more pleasing to the eye, but also an additional usage bar that speeds up any action they have to perform and consequently reduces distractions from the road in front of them.
Among the innovations included in the Coolwalk interface there is also a bar inside the music player that allows you to stop the song you are listening to but also to move on to the next one with a simple click. The position of the bar changes according to the type of monitor you have installed in your car. In fact, for all monitors of lower quality than full hd, the bar will be displayed at the bottom, while for those of higher quality, the same bar will be visible on the right edge of the screen. Currently the update is only available to users who have joined the beta, but once the testing phase is over it should be available to everyone.
The new version of the software will be missing a key function
In recent years Google has been very fluctuating on the inclusion of the weather detection function in its software. This was inserted and removed several times and in some updates it worked intermittently until the latest update that improved the function and made real-time data accessible to motorists. According to what emerged from the tests of Coolwalk, currently the weather conditions have disappeared from the information bar. Impossible to say in the current phase of development if the function in question will be inserted at a later time or if it will already be present from the official launch of the new update.
