Google is introducing a new split-screen interface for Android Auto

Google has stated that it would be releasing a “refreshed” Android Auto experience to consumers, which will include a split-screen user interface (UI).

The new design updates and feature improvements will provide users a “more personal, easy-to-use experience,” according to a blog post published on Thursday by the tech giant.

The new design focuses primarily on three essential functions for drivers: navigation, communication with friends and family, and music or podcast playing.

‘Maps’ is now closer to the driver’s seat so that they can see where they are going at a glance.

In addition, Google Assistant now gives users with smart suggestions, such as reminders for missed calls, arrival time sharing, and immediate access to music and podcasts.

“We’re introducing a seekable progress bar for music and podcasts — one of our top requested features– so you can skip ahead in a song or episode,” the company said.

“Last but not least, starting with the latest Pixel and Samsung phones, you can soon make calls using WhatsApp with Android Auto,” it added.

Users could only earlier exchange their digital car keys between Pixel and iPhone users, but the company has now revealed that Samsung phones will soon be able to do the same, and Xiaomi users will be able to use and share digital car keys later this year.
