If you do not have a recent car and / or save too much on replacing your stereo on an old device, you can get the most out of the Android Auto interface by running the Android Auto app on your phone. This is a great way to go, because all you really need is a car ride that saves you $ 400 to $ 1,400. There is now a way you can try out the latest and greatest features of the app: a beta app.
Google is predictably using the Play Store beta to distribute the new app. If you are new to this distribution method, just go to this selection link, click “Test” and the Android Auto app on your phone will be automatically updated to the beta version. However, when there is one thing: Google does not promise to always use beta features, because auto-development is a bit more than some other first-person apps.
In fact, it now seems to be the case: the Android Auto Beta list now shows the same change from the standard version from July 9, so don’t bother getting a better start. Several other versions have been released since then (which we’ve tracked in the APK Mirror), but there have been no major changes to the user experience.
Although Google is announcing the Android Auto app beta today, according to our uploads, it has been running since at least May. It seems that the company wants a much wider number of users to be able to test its changes and features. So get to it.
