Android Auto gets new look, simplified interaction

After all, Android is used by dozens of different phonemakers (and hundreds of different phones at this point), whereas Apple maintains a much tighter leash on iOS. That's because Samsung offers two major Android OS updates to most of its devices, which means that any Galaxy phone or tablet that was launched with Android 7.0 Nougat or earlier will not be eligible to receive Android Q. That puts flagships like the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 out of the running, even though they may be fully capable of running Android Q. The same goes for any Galaxy device launched before 2018, as it was only a year ago that Samsung started releasing phones with Android Oreo out of the box.

Both devices feature an OLED display, stereo sound, Google Photos backup, and a 3.5mm headphone jack because "we heard some people want more headphone options".

The old philosophy behind providing Google Now-style snippets of information on the home screen, like weather and navigation, made a lot of sense on paper - though it was hardly the most intuitive experience in practice.

Google has also previously announced that you will be able to choose to share location data with apps only while they're in use.

Lakers Moving Toward Offering Tyronn Lue Head Coaching Job
While many wanted Williams to be the next head coach of the Lakers, Lue will provide the Lakers will and experienced head coach. Lue reached the NBA Finals three times while coaching LeBron James and the Cavaliers, including an NBA championship in 2016.

That's a welcome change, as I can personally say there's nothing more annoying than an obnoxiously bright screen blinding you on a long night drive. Still, Google traditionally uses I/O to officially unveil some of its more exciting new products and services - with a focus on Android, of course - and this year is no exception.

Google promises to roll out the update over the summer distributed among the corresponding cars. Notifications also get minor updates, enabling the driver to view, listen to or respond to various highlights. If someone calls you, you can accept these buttons quickly or reject them with a message. The "Active Edge" technology, which summons Google Assistant by firmly gripping the sides of the phone will also make a comeback on the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. Perhaps tomorrow's event is just too jam-packed full of awesomeness to include Android Auto, but for whatever the reason, there's plenty of new stuff to talk about.

Also, Google Android Auto has better adapted to new screens. Google sided with Verizon as its official launch partner but the device will also be coming to T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
