Google is testing a Play Pass subscription service: Would you subscribe?

Android Auto Redesign main interface 2

While some users managed to get access to the new Android Auto UI by installing the latest version of the app, namely 4.5.5928, it's important to know this is a server-side switch. Today Google went into more details on its blog about what those behind the wheel of an Android Auto compatible vehicle can expect.

Google's Files app is a very important tool. Assistant's driving mode will launch automatically when a user's phone is connected to a vehicle's bluetooth simply by saying "Hey Google, let's drive".

With this new subscription service, Google aims to take on the upcoming Apple Arcade, which will offer subscription-based access to premium games and apps. On August 1, Google announced in a new blog post that the lightweight app is now used by over 100 million people around the world every month. The Bell icon is placed to check the notifications from other apps.

Whatever the results are, we are eager to see what this new Google project has to offer us. A driver can either pick up or decline the call using their voice.

Among the most noticeable changes is a menu bar appearing at the bottom of the screen. It doesn't occupy a large space so you can still manage several apps with more efficiency. If you're navigation and not on the maps screen, your next turn-by-turn direction will pop up instead. However, Android Police notes that the price of the service may change when it finally launches. Well, the in-app purchases are unlocked, so you don't have to spend extra on games.

'With the new navigation bar, you'll be able to easily control your apps with one tap. "A dark theme, coupled with colorful accents and easier to read fonts, also helps improve visibility".

The updated Android Auto boasts improved visibility. Google is pushing out a substantial update to Android Auto that transforms the interface into something that more closely resembles Apple's CarPlay.
