Tencent Technologies, according to foreign media reports, Google ahead of this week's I O developers Conference announced the latest update to its Android Auto car networking platform. The update, which is expected to be officially launched this summer, will provide users with a more intuitive, easy-to-use, user-friendly interface to complete tasks with fewer clicks. At the same time, it will also join the much-anticipated
Specifically, the new Android Auto adds a dynamic navigation bar at the bottom of the user interface. In this design, Android Auto will no longer just set static white buttons on a black background, but will allow some applications to essentially take over part of the navigation bar, so users can perform more specific operations without opening the application.
For example, if a user is using Google Maps to navigate to a destination, but does not open a complete application on the screen, the new navigation will still show the next navigation direction on the screen. Or, if the user opens a complete map application to navigate, while playing music in the background, the navigation bar will display the play pause/skip button for applications such as Spotify, which facilitates one-click control.
Google says that as long as it is approved for use on the Android Auto platform
The updated navigation bar also provides a one-click access to Google Assistant and moves the Home button from the middle to the left. In the notification center, users can now start more operations on the notification interface, but at present we have no more information.

In addition to the design changes mentioned above, Google also said that the upgraded Android Auto can now automatically continue to play media content. Moreover, as long as you connect your mobile phone to the car, it will open the navigation application selected by the user for navigation.
The news is that the new Android Auto will be launched on all compatible models later this summer. (Tencent Technology Review/Tom)
