Android Auto beta program now open to everyone
Google opens the Android Auto beta program to more users. Anyone with an Android device can now join the program to preview new Android Auto features ahead of their public deployment.
Android Auto has been in beta for a long time now. However, it was virtually impossible to reach him until now. Attempting to register often resulted in an error indicating that the program had already reached the maximum number of users. Google probably weren’t hiring a lot of testers at a time.
However, the company is now expansion the program to more willing users. Anyone who has a compatible Android smartphone and is willing to put up with the bugs and the generally unstable nature of beta software can now register. The process is pretty straightforward. See you on this beta registration page and click on the “Become a tester” button. Now download the beta version of the Android Auto app from the Play Store and you are ready to go.
You’ll get early access to new features that you can test out and provide feedback to the company. “As a beta tester, you can help us build a better version of Android Auto,” says Google. “You can test how the new features work with your specific phone and vehicle in your part of the world. When you share your feedback, we’ll use it to plan improvements for future versions ”. The company should urge beta testers not to post or share details of unpublished features with other users.
You can also exit the beta program whenever you want. Just visit the unsubscribe page, click the “Exit the program” button, uninstall the beta app and download the stable app from the Google Play Store. Note that you can only have one version of Android Auto installed on your phone at a time, either beta (if eligible) or stable.
Google opens Android Auto beta to more users as it expands availability
The expansion of the Android Auto beta program comes at a time when Google is working to expand the availability as well as the usability of the app. Currently, Android Auto is available for users over 40 major markets worldwide. The company has pledged to roll out the service to dozens of more countries over the next few months, including much of Eastern Europe and a handful of countries in Southeast Asia and Africa. It also announced last year that all Android 11 devices will connect Android Auto Wireless compatible vehicles.
