Android Auto update adds new interface: download it here!
After being announced last month, the great Android Auto renewal is now available. Discover the main new features of version 4.4, including a new dark mode.
Android Auto is the technology developed by Google so that you can synchronize your Android smartphone with your car, and thus take full advantage of the screen in your vehicle (safely), using things like GPS navigation and interacting with Google Assistant.
Now Android Auto celebrates its fifth anniversary with a long-awaited change of UI, highly demanded by its users. The update basically focuses on the new redesign. These are the main features:
- Dark mode support
- New application launcher
- Music player integrated in the navigation bar so you can control the music without leaving the GPS, as well as using the player in full screen and at the same time see the navigation instructions
- Self-playing music so that when you turn on your car, the music will continue to play where you left it
- Interface adapted to the latest screens, which are wider
How to download the new version of Android Auto
As always, to upgrade to the latest version of Android Auto you must do so from the Play Store. This update is coming progressively, so if you still do not see Android Auto version 4.4, you can also do it manually by downloading the APK file from this link.
If you still don't use Android Auto, this may be a good time to start. Here's our guide on how to install Android Auto in your car, and the essential applications to get the most out of it.
I had the new look for exactly one day and then it reverted back to the old look in my car. I have emptied the cache, force stopped, uninstalled, reinstalled and reconnected as a new car and it hasn't made a difference. Still looks like the old interface.
False information. I have the Android Auto 4.4.5923. It does not contain new UI or the dark mode. Readers will loose trust if you publish fake information just to get some hits.
Google has not officially started rolling out the new dark mode to all users. Updating to the latest Android Auto doesn’t automatically bring the redesign... yet. It should happen sometime this summer.
I have it turned on now. It was actually super easy.
