Life is easy with AAP
Is there any update in the future for an app in Android auto for lyft and uber? I believe it would be a much safer way to do lyft and uber through android auto on my cars touch screen and MUCH easier. I hate exiting android auto to accept a request through the app. Also when you hit navigate through your phone I think it should automatically connect to android auto so I don't need to park my car everytime I have to retype the address in my cars touch screen! Thanks! Great app as well and LOVE the convenience of the options it currently has!
I have a 2017 Volvo S90 T6 and this app works perfectly. It lets me toggle between all my music apps. I can speak the name of an artist and it will play songs by that artist or I can tell it to play specific songs and it does so seamlessly. I believe it's playing through Spotifys library since that is my main music app. I can use Google Maps either typing or verbally. Google will read my texts aloud and let me verbally respond to them. The home page on my cars tablet screen is just like Googles Home Page on my phone. I can make and answer calls. No complaints. Glad I have this app. If you have a car that supports Android Auto, you won't be disappointed.
Phone screen version works well, and the interface is mostly good. Auto-launch doesn't cause the app to launch when it's in my pocket (light sensor?), which is nice. The bottom left navigation button should show the "back" icon instead of the "home" icon, at least on the phone screen version. Maps interface is very good, but Maps should not automatically navigate to home when launched -- there are already shortcuts for that (if you want to "show Maps" with no destination, you need to tap "Maps" and then "Cancel" when it assumes you want to go home).
Contacts page of this app can use a major overhaul to make it easier to call at least a few few favorite contacts. Scrolling through a list where you can only see 3 at a time is terrible. My suggestion would be to have something like squares of contact photos that may be able to hold 8 on a screen at a time. Would be nice to have it load more quickly. There seems to be a glitch where when I select a particular song from a playlist it starts playing some other song.
• Android Auto now works with any car! Use it directly on your phone screen
• Just say “Ok Google” to use voice commands, don’t need to touch the screen first
• Scroll through song lists more easily with the new letter jump feature
