Android Auto Demo

by birtanpublished on April 3, 2021

Hey guys Ryan from Android police and I'm gonna try to do a quick demo of Android auto for you here you'll have to forgive the video quality it's not not terribly easy to shoot a decent video in a car and so what you see here is the overview screen it's sort of a combination of Google now cards and notifications google has chosen to only show you the notifications that it thinks are important on this screen so not every app that produces a notification on the phone will show up here that's mostly messages in directions and weather and things like that so so there's that and you get

There with this center button here it looks like the lollipop home button and way over here on the left is the Google Maps interface because where you go for directions and then when you're stopped you've got this search box up here that actually shows you a full keyboard and that goes away when you're moving actually so then you just have this voice button up here in the corner then next over is the dialer and this only gives you access to your favorite contacts by default so then you can you still use a voice dial to get to other people or dial a number manually which

Seems a little bit odd to me but you can also access missed calls um so it's it's somewhat limited but you know if you're if you can do voice dialing then you know it should be okay back to the home screen and then over on the audio tab here by default you have play music and there are a few other supported apps right now I only have one other installed but you can switch between them by pressing down here again and so kind of similar to the dialer you only have access to a limited number of things you can't access the full music library you can do the listen now thing

Radio playlists things like that you can also do a voice search of course so you know at least there's that and then way on the right this doesn't really do much right now just a return to Pioneer it takes you back to the the Pioneer interface if you want to leave Android auto this tab will eventually on some cars it'll have things like like diagnostics like tire pressure backup cameras or whatever it's my impression right now that even cars that have a built in aren't utilizing this yet but at some point they will for the time being it's just taking

Especially on aftermarket head units like this it doesn't doesn't really do anything so you probably noticed this the voice icon is on all the screens you can only activate that by touch or with a steering wheel button even on devices that you have the Google now hot word enabled you can't just say ok Google to to turn that on which seems a little odd I guess I can understand reasons to do that but that's just the way it works right now so wherever you are you can just tap that and tell it to do stuff so let's try that find a nearby gas stations here are addresses for gas

Stations so there we go and you can tap on any of these and you get call and navigation you probably knows it takes a second for the voice activation stuff to kick in I'm not sure why that is it just it seems like it tastes a little bit too long so there's that and then you can also do things like music by voice you don't have to go all the way over to the music tab to to play music so let's let's try that real fast sometimes this is a little bit buggy so we'll see how it goes play Opeth playing open so it's plain it still says getting your

Selection which it does sometimes I'm not sure why yeah sometimes if you pause and then play again if you pause and play again it shows up correctly I don't know why just one of the weird little quirks of Google plays music on Android auto every now and then but that's that's sort of the gist of Android auto so um you can check out the full review if if you want to learn more about it thanks
