Android Auto was first launched in 2015 and has since become one of the most popular in-car infotainment platforms. The latest update brings support for Android 10, as well as the ability to control music and navigation from the lockscreen.
The update also includes
a number of new features and improvements, such as the ability to customize the homescreen, and support for third-party app integration.
With more than 400 million devices now supporting Android Auto, it is one of the most widely used platforms for in-car infotainment. The latest update brings a number of new features and improvements that will make it even more popular.
Google stated at the time that the update would be available before the end of the summer. But, as we turn on the heat and reach for our knitwear in late September, the Coolwalk upgrade is still missing.
Summer officially ends on September 23 in the northern hemisphere. So, in order for Google to meet its own deadline, Android Auto must receive the update this week. This could come as a downloadable software update, but it could also be triggered by a server-side change from Google, enabling the new interface with the flip of a switch.
We believe a downloadable update to a new build number, such as 8.2, is most likely, and we remain hopeful that it will arrive before summer officially ends later this week.
