San Francisco, Nov. 13 (SocialNews.XYZ) Tech giant Google has released a public beta of the new Coolwalk UI on the Play Store with some new features and changes for users to try out.
Android Auto is an application that allows drivers to access music, media and navigation apps on the car infotainment system screens by connecting their Android smartphones.
According to Android Central, Google announced earlier this year that it was preparing a major redesign for Android Auto.
While the Coolwalk design was expected to arrive in the summer, it didn’t, leaving users wondering when it would actually reach consumers.
Coolwalk was unveiled at Google I/O 2022 (an annual developer conference), giving Android Auto a dynamic split-screen user interface that would adapt more effectively to different screen sizes, the report said.
The goal was to make key apps and features easier to access with a single tap, so drivers can focus more on the road.
As part of its features, it includes a split screen user interface that moves the map closer to the driver in the new dashboard for better accessibility.
Users can also resize the map so that it can fill the entire screen for a better view of their route if desired, the report said.
The company has also redesigned the media card, allowing it to grow and shrink dynamically, such as when a new message arrives.
It also gives users quick access to Google Assistant media suggestions with just a swipe.
