Android Auto has received a new update that includes new features. With the push of a button, you can now access media content based on your preferences. At the moment, deployment seems very limited and few users have noticed.
Android Auto just keeps getting better with updates. The latest version 6.6.612534. introduces a new feature. The latter is very discreet, but has still been detected by some users. It provides access to personalized media content.
It was a user of the famous Reddit website who shared his find. He posted a photo showing his onboard computer. We noticed the appearance of a new button to the player’s right. This key shaped like a musical note (and circled in red) was not present before.
Android Auto, a new mode based on your tastes
By pressing it, a new window will appear. It features boxes dedicated to various multimedia contents with the mention “Content to support driving”. Here, we only see content related to Spotify and Google Assistant, which makes sense for a car, but some Reddit users pointed out in the comments that other applications are affected. The XDA developers, who pass on the information, add that these suggestions are most likely based on your preferences and browsing history. Google knows all about you and is now with you on the road.

This update seems to be very marginal at the moment. In fact, all users who upgraded to version 6.6.612534. Android Auto does not have access to this new button and accompanying menu. Therefore, you will have to wait for the deployment (which is usually done in waves) to get to your vehicle. Also, this feature looks like for now reserved for the English version only. Tell us in the comments if you purchased in French possibly.
You can also get the latest updates before everyone else by signing up for the beta program. Once that’s done, you’ll have access to the latest news, but you’ll also risk cleaning the plaster when it comes to insects.
