Android Auto is now getting new features within the beta version. Recently the update brings Coolwalk and from the past few hours, several users on the Android Auto subreddit have found that their devices have swapped over to the redesign on cars using a rotary input style.
Initially, Google appeared to be blocking cars with rotary input from using “Coolwalk,” presumably while the company was optimizing the experience for that method of input.
Touchscreens are much more common in modern cars that natively support Android Auto, but it’s not uncommon to find this style of control in cars from Mazda, BMW, and Acura among others.
The Android Auto beta program is still needed in order to access the “Coolwalk” redesign, though the program has been full for the past several weeks since Google first announced the rollout.
