6. Android Auto for Wider Screen

Android Auto can now expand its display to fit into the wider screen. The extended display will provide you more information, playback controls, next-turn navigation, and outgoing calls.

One thing that should be kept in mind is that Android Auto is not considered as an operating system. It is an additional interface or HMI layer that stays on top of an operating system. And it should not be confused with the Google Android Automotive OS that is recently opened for the third party media app developers.

The more information about Android Auto's new interface is expected to be announced at the Google I/O 2019 event. It might not be the biggest expected announcements but it is definitely worth trying.
