what new features it incorporates and how you can test the new version

  • 34

Google continues to improve the application that allows us to connect the mobile to the car to make calls, view maps and even listen to music. As part of this evolution, it is now available the first beta of Android Auto 7.4. It is a version that arrives without great news, but that prepares the ground for the arrival of the new Coolwalk interface and other features.

The Mountain View have not included a changelog in Android 7.4 beta. Consequently, everything seems to indicate that only minor improvements “under the hood” of the system are included. However, while we wait for the app to move to the stable channel, we can test it. The process is as simple as downloading the beta APK, installing it on our phone and connecting it to the car.

Download the latest beta of Android Auto on your mobile

There are two ways to test the development versions of Android Auto: enroll in the beta program or download and install the APK. The first option has a limited number of testers, so it is usually closed. In the case of the second, there is no impediment, so we are going to focus on it. Just follow these steps to download Android 7.4 beta:

  • Access the page ApkMirror and look for the APK that corresponds to the hardware of your smartphone.
  • Download the app and install it.
  • Connect your smartphone to the car to start testing the functions (you can also do it from the phone itself).

As we can see, there are still no traces of the interface change that Android Auto will release. If you don’t want to wait for Coolwalk to reach the final version of the app, you can try it out in advance if you have a rooted phone.

For now, it only remains to wait to see the new functions that will come to Android Auto throughout the year in operation. Users of the latest final version of the application (7.3) already have EasyPark parking app support.

As explained by the company, “The support allows drivers of almost all major car manufacturers to use the EasyPark application and services on the screen of the car.” It should be remembered that this function was already available in Apple CarPlay.
