Google launched a split-screen UI for Android Auto Coolwalk, improving consumer usefulness and convenience.

Android Auto can customize to provide more features while driving. The Coolwalk UI flips to put alarms and assistant icons on the driver’s side, and it also changes Google Assistant’s behavior, app start orders, and more.

Here’s how to customize Android Auto:

  • Go to Android Auto in the upper search bar of Settings.
  • To see the complete list of choices, open it and navigate down.
  • What each option does is described below.
  1. Customize the launcher:  It lets users reorder apps and prioritize driving apps.
  2. Hey Google Command:  Users can better manage apps and services by turning on or off “Hey Google” detection. Speech model training improves detection speed and accuracy.
  3. Start Android Auto automatically:  You can choose to start Android Auto when you link your phone to the car.
  4. Sync work profile: Enabling this choice will enable you to receive alerts for your work profile.
