Android Auto adds media and messaging features

Android Auto adds media and messaging features

That version of Auto isn't here quite yet, but Google is still issuing updates to the traditional Android Auto app to make the user's experience more enjoyable and much more useful.

If you're a regular user of any of those apps listed above, you'll see an improved layout that surfaces things like your recent activity with large album art. In addition to previews, Android Auto is also gaining support for MMS and RCS messages. Android Auto will now display a preview of your texts from Messages, WhatsApp or Hangouts once you've stopped driving. First, Google is making it easier to find and play media while your are on the wheel. You can also ask for a specific song, podcast, or book. And Google says that it's working to bring new updates to more music and media apps. The message will show up within whatever app you're in (like Google Maps).

Meanwhile, the app bar in "My apps & games" is now stark white - matching Google's broader design language - with the previous green accent only present to note what tab you're currently viewing.

While Android Auto offers solid and safe access to much of the audio-only media on your phone while you're driving, finding that flawless track or album can sometimes be a wee bit clumsy.
