As the end of Android Auto for phones approaches, Google Maps Driving Mode gets a new feature

The migration to the new driving mode is happening as we speak, and according to a recent report, Google has actually moved a step closer to the demise of Android Auto for phones quite recently.

Google has previously stated that it is preparing a major change for Android Auto users on mobile devices, with the company announcing that the phone app would be phased out in favour of a new driving mode integrated with Google Maps and powered by Google Assistant. The dashboard is in driving mode. Dashboard display in driving mode To put it another way, Android Auto for phones is being phased out in favour of a new driving mode that provides a comparable experience but with a lot more features thanks to Google Assistant integration.

Therefore, the search giant has enabled the new driving experience on more devices. Users who now launch the mobile version of Android Auto see a banner telling them about the modern replacement available on their devices. But on the other hand, the migration isn’t complete yet, and most likely, it would still take a few more weeks for Google to completely retire Android Auto for phones. So if anything, everybody should be prompted to switch to the new driving mode by the end of the year. In the meantime, Google is working around the clock on getting this driving mode ready for prime time.

This feature’s most recent quiet update has brought a new option that allows users to automatically launch the driving mode when the mobile device connects to the car’s Bluetooth. This should theoretically make the experience overall even more straightforward. The new driving mode should take over your mobile screen when you turn on the engine, and the Bluetooth connection is established. This setting, however, isn’t enabled by default, and users are still allowed to choose when connecting to Bluetooth. As an extra, they can decide if they want to be asked before launching the driving mode.
