Now you can make your long car trips much more entertaining thanks to the latest Android Auto update that includes a series of simple games.
Now Android Auto brings you video games to enjoy on long journeys
Android Auto is constantly being updated over the last few months due to its popularity and its growing presence in all vehicles on the market, and while we recently told you about the custom backgrounds, now they are going to include video games, although perhaps not the games you think.
And is that soon you will have a collection of games on Android Auto, although it is not the type of games that, for example, does have the new Tesla. Rather, they are intended to be enjoyed through voice commands and Google Assistant. These games that are included onboard in Android Auto are more aimed at passengers, although as long as the vehicle is parked the driver could also enjoy them, especially on those long trips where you have to park.
The games included are Trivia Crack, Jeopardy, Song Quiz, and Are You Feeling Lucky? and can be activated by voice commands. You simply need to say to the existing Google the phrase “OK Google, I want to play”.
But not only do video games come with the latest Android Auto update, but also other additions that you are going to appreciate.
On the one hand, the interface becomes much more direct and simple thanks to the inclusion of new shortcuts so that the most used applications are always on the first screen with which we can include shortcuts to the contact list or the Google Assistant itself, among others.
For those vehicles with wider screens, this new version of Android Auto also includes a split-screen view, which when inhabited will show, for example, a real-time view of Google Maps but also media controls.
A sort of privacy screen mode will also be included, where you can control when the Android Auto system will appear on the car’s screen so that it is not visible to everyone.
The update is staggered and should start rolling out over the next few weeks, as Google has positioned it for a global release in the spring.
