That’s all set to change as Google looks to introduce an option that lets frustrated users start Android Auto and use it when the phone is locked. Google says that the new feature will permit “access to your phone features on the in-car screen while it’s locked.”
When it comes to operating through any form of lock screen on your phone, Android Auto has always fallen short. Simply put, it can’t operate at all, which is why the announcement of two new beta upgrades aimed at overcoming this constraint is such welcome news for Android Auto users. Users will be able to take control of how Android Auto starts in their cars after putting in one of the top Android phones with the current beta update. To enable Android Auto to display its interface on the best Android Auto head unit installations, customers must first unlock their screen. Connecting a phone with an unlocked screen, on the other hand, activates Android Auto.
Second, the folks over at Auto Evolution note that Google is also introducing the ability to fire up Android Auto immediately when it’s plugged in inside of your vehicle. The running of the in-car service will therefore be automated inside of your car, with the setting making it possible to auto-boot Android Auto or, if you prefer, to use it in manual mode. While the former saves time and effort, the latter requires Android Auto users to run the app themselves after connecting their phones to the head unit. Reddit user Peter_73 says that the two new features arrived for them in the latest beta build, (beta version 7.0.113904), which also happens to be the first Android Auto 7.0 build to arrive on the scene.
Google is constantly refreshing Android Auto with user-improving tweaks, with the service now recently optimized for right-hand drive vehicles and with known user bugs being constantly addressed by the search giant. Hopefully, these latest features will arrive in a stable build very soon, so users can reap the benefits of more seamless integration and interaction between Android Auto and their vehicles.
