Google to roll out new Android Auto interface

Google I/O 2019 kicked off today. A new API will let apps know when dark theme is enabled, and devs have the option to invert colors in their own apps.

We've asked, and Google has listened. Why it's taken this long to add one is beyond us, but I suppose it's better late than never.

With the new layout, there should be significantly less screen switching.

Improves visibility for users with low vision and those who are sensitive to bright light.

Entry level devices running Android Q will now support encryption, providing more security for them. Google is also improving parental controls so that parents can set usage limits on individual apps as well. However, by figuring out to how to reduce the size its speech recognition library to under half a gigabyte, Google has made it possible for the Assistant will be able to respond to voice commands completely using on-device, without the need to ping the cloud. The Live Caption function works for any media that's playing audio across the OS. However, if you're more interested in using Google services with your existing vehicle, that has been trickier to achieve.

These are just a few of the new features coming to Android Q. You can read Google's blog post which explains all the exciting features the new version of Android is bringing. Swiping from the screen's left or right edge triggers the Back action. With Android Q, you will always receive a notification when a device tries to access your location. Android Q is a big part of that effort.

Brendan Rodgers lauds Pep Guardiola as a 'pioneer' of management
Guardiola will be hoping the Belgian is fit for their final encounter which could possibly decide the Premier League title. They're exciting games to be involved in. "He wanted to be one of the best players in the world at that age".

For cars with larger touchscreen units, Android Auto will also display more information to maximize the available amount of real estate. For example, we created a dedicated Privacy section under Settings, where you'll find important controls in one place.

Additionally, Google has implemented a new notification center, which it said compiles all phone calls and messages together. When you are done, you can resume all other apps. Android Q also provides protections for other sensitive device information, like serial numbers.

The new Android Auto interface is loosely based on Google's new Material Theme guidelines rather than the older Material Design UI elements.

With the music open, you'll get turn-by-turn information in the bottom bar.

As the first operating system to support 5G, Android Q offers app developers tools to build for faster connectivity, enhancing experiences like gaming and augmented reality.
