While Google is now expected to release Android Auto version 5.8 any day, here’s another update that has come out completely blue and its purpose is currently unclear.
New Android Auto now available for download 5.7.603964 (An increase from the 5.7.603944 framework released in early October), so naturally, this minor version change update often implies that the band comes with at least one important thing in the fix.
If you’re an Android Auto user, you’ll definitely know how important these fixes really are for the whole experience, especially since Google has a lot to improve on its use, including phone call issues that occur after the update to Android 11, starting and ending with hands-free contact with Google Assistant.
On the other hand, the search company has provided zero details about this mysterious release, so we believe a bug has been added and the company has not specified what to do with the new update. Instead, this version points to the same old changelog and improved TNT functionality that was included in previous releases, which now obscures the dark mode and bug fixes and other improvements on the car UI that are now independent of the phone.
But at the same time, an important change thanks to this mysterious Android Auto update is not tied to the features of the app, but to how the new version is distributed in the Google Play Store.
Everyone gets this new version of Android Auto at the same time, while previous updates were actually sent to devices that were sent in waves. So theoretically, you shouldn’t have to wait to get the new Android Auto version, and it will allow you to download it while checking for updates on the Google Play Store.
Meanwhile, the release of Android Auto 5.8 is imminent and we expect Google to release it any day.
