When switching between profiles, Android auto update adds games
App updates have its own pros and cons. First and foremost, app updates are important because it protects you from security vulnerabilities. Each new release might include new features or bug fixes from previous versions.
Your smartphone having the updated android apps (a lot of them) is always a bonus, but these notifications of all the app updates are really annoying. You might really want to have a control over the app updates.
Google Play Store allows you to automatically update apps when a new version of the app is released on the Play Store. You can turn on auto-updates for apps so you would never have to think about manually updating apps again.
For this reason, Google Play allows you to disable auto-updates for all apps or selective apps of your choice.
What is Android Auto?
In the digital age, our cars sometimes get new features for free while parked. This can happen without the owner or the car manufacturer lifting a finger. Case in point – Android Car users will soon be waking up to find that their cars are capable of all sorts of new tricks, thanks to Google.
For the non-initiative Android Auto is a system that allows Android-based phones to interfere with the infotainment system of a car. It lets drivers control their phones via the car’s touchscreen and voice commands.
Owners can send and receive text messages (Google Assistant will read them aloud), check music and navigation apps, and manage their calendars without taking their hands off the wheel.
It works with a wired connection on many cars, but newer models may have a wireless version. It is not present on all cars. It was launched in 2015, and car manufacturers have been gradually adding it to many new cars as they redesign them. However, drivers can add it to a car for 2015, by upgrading their infotainment system.
Apple has a similar product, known as CarPlay. Some cars have only one as the other system, but many offer both. New features: Custom driving screens, games (if parked)
With the new update, users can switch between the personal and business profiles of their phone with voice commands. Android Auto will now allow users to configure a custom home screen, unlike the normal home screen of their phone, which only appears in the car. It is ideal for those who want their favorite navigation app to be the easiest to find while driving, but it is never necessary when they are not.
The update also allows users to play phone games on the car’s touchscreen when in the park. Google Assistant also gets driving update
For those without a screen in the car, Google Assistant has its own driving mode. The company has updated that as well. Users can now activate drive mode with the voice command “hey, Google, let’s drive.” It creates a separate drive home screen with large icons for the most used apps, so you can easily tap on Spotify without searching for it.
