  • The new Android Auto user interface is rolling out to public beta testers now.
  • It features a whole new look, easier controls, and a better split-screen.
  • Unfortunately, the public beta roster is full, so you can’t see it unless you’ve already joined.

At Google I/O in May, Google showed off a teaser of an update to Android Auto. The infotainment system was going to get a new look and new features. At the time, the company promised it would land by the end of the summer.

Unfortunately, the summer came and went with no word on the new Android Auto. Today, though, Google is finally dropping the update — sort of. For now, only public beta testers will have access to the redesign. If you head to the Android Auto listing on the Google Play Store, you’ll notice that the public beta roster is full. That means if you haven’t already signed up for the beta, you won’t be able to give this a shot quite yet.
