The Android version for the car is stablely updated with the new version Android auto10.5
A week after Android Auto 10.5 was official as a beta , the same version is official and is therefore available to all users as an update on Google Play , without depending on the beta program or APK files.
Android Auto 10.5 beta left us wanting more news, since we didn’t find any news and something similar happens to us now that stable Android Auto 10.5 is being distributed. Yes, we have found a new setting for developers .
Android Auto 10.5 is here
Android Auto is updated almost every week for better or worse. Google almost never informs us of the changes , so it is up to us to investigate whether the news that Google told us would arrive has been activated. This does not seem to be the case on Android Auto 10.5 stable.
After testing Android Auto 10.5, we have not yet been able to use Zoom or WebEx , even though Google announced that it was being activated for everyone a few days ago. There is also no trace of the redesign of the settings with Material You (still active only for some) or the setting to change the app that opens at startup that we discovered months ago.
Android Auto 10.5 includes a new option for developers, Test Harness mode, but don’t get your hopes up: it’s for developers
What we have found is a new option for developers called Test harness mode . It is, effectively, a developer option that was added in Android 10 and, as Google explains , allows third-party app developers to automate a device or fleet of devices with methods to erase all data on an Android device, preserve keys ADB and skip the initial setup screens. In short, it is a tool for testing applications.
As always, Android Auto should hopefully include bug fixes and internal improvements . Very necessary, in addition, since the application has had several errors recently such as the “voice commands not available” error , poor quality audio on some radios or various errors on Pixel mobiles , on Waze and others .
Being an official version, it will come to you as an update on Google Play , just like any other application. However, if for any reason you prefer to update through the APK, you can download the new version from APKMirror .
