Android Auto is updated almost every week although In most cases we do not notice any changebut With Android Auto 11.2 we are going to receive two new features to the car dashboard. We learned about both novelties with the beta version which was released less than a week ago.

You can now update to Android Auto 11.2 without having to be part of the beta program and by doing so you will have a new design for the Assistant from Google and notifications if your phone is running overheating.

Overheat warning


If you’re lucky, you’ll never see the first of the changes, as it will mean that your phone stays cool and performing optimally while you use it in Android Auto: the overheat warning. When the phone is too hot, we see a notification in Android Auto.

This notification invites us to turn off the mobile screen to reduce the temperature when it detects that the phone is “too hot”. When your phone overheats, in addition to being bad for battery life, performance is reduced and can be a cause of disconnections in Android Auto.

New Assistant design


One change that you will want to see is the new design of the Assistant that gets it out of the way, preventing it from blocking the maps application while he answers us or waits for us to speak to him. Instead, the Google Assistant interface is displayed, when in use, in secondary places such as the shortcuts bar or the space reserved for widgets.

Until now, the Google Assistant was displayed in a panel that could obscure important parts of the map while it is in operation and that remains open during the entire conversation with the Assistant, which is not optimal as we could miss our exit at the roundabout. It shouldn’t happen to us anymore, at least not for this reason.

Others pending functions, still pendingas Zoom compatibility to others that have been discovered and do not appear, the disconnect button he redesign settings with Material You or adjustment for change the app that opens at startup. These are the steps to update to Android Auto 11.2:

  • First, check which version of Android Auto you already havesince it is possible that it has been updated without you knowing it.
  • If you still don’t have Android Auto 11.2, open Google Play and tap on your profile photo, then choose Manage apps and device. Press then Update all.
  • If you still don’t see the update, visit the Android Auto 11.2 on APKMirror and download the file to your mobile.
  • Open the file (it will open with the package installer) and press Update when asked.
