Android Auto, as most of you know, is a mobile app developed by Google which mirrors features and interface from an Android device connected to the head unit/infotainment system of a vehicle.

"You can select the apps you find distracting-such as email or the news-and silence them until you come out of Focus mode", Cuthbertson said.

If you have Google Maps open, the new driving mode will let you call people or play music by giving voice commands. Focus mode will be available on Android Pie and Android Q devices this fall under the Digital Wellbeing app.

Finally, Google has also streamlined Android Auto's startup, so that as soon as you turn your vehicle on, Android Auto will start playing whatever song you were listening to last and pop up your favourite navigation app. Look for these updates to roll out to compatible Android Auto infotainment systems later this summer.

Starting in Beta 3, Google is enabling system-provided smart replies and actions that are inserted directly into notifications by default. When you compare Android adoption rates to the user numbers of Apple's latest iOS updates, the difference is usually quite massive.

For the 10th major version of Android, Google is focusing on a few big categories: innovation, privacy, and digital wellbeing. Personally I am looking forward to seeing what Google do with their gestures after OEMs showed them how to do it properly with full screen devices. Falling under Google's on-device machine learning products, Live Caption will automatically generate captions for any kind of video playing on the device.

This is another feature we've been waiting on, so Android Q continues to deliver the goods. This changes the system UI to dark, and enables the dark theme of apps that support it.

The new Nest Hub Max will be released later this summer with a price of $229 but for that price, you will get some serious upgrades from the original Hub. In Android Q, you will have the option to share location only while data is being actively used. If someone calls you, you can accept these buttons quickly or reject them with a message.

In some ways, that's the real dream: you turn on Android's dark theme once, and from there, you'll live in a world totally comprised of dark mode apps.

With Google Plat Protect running on all Android devices, it scans over 50 billion apps every day.

As the first operating system to support 5G, Android Q offers app developers tools to build for faster connectivity, enhancing experiences like gaming and augmented reality.
