The new Android Auto interface has become more convenient to control while driving, with larger elements. The interface will now adapt to different screen sizes and orientations.

Reading mode for the entire system and the ability to

Google has introduced several new features for the OS without updating the version of Android.

The new mode is designed to optimize the reading process, allowing you to adjust the contrast, speech synthesis, font size and type, as well as highlight the main thing on the page. In general, Google says that the mode is intended for users with visual impairments and dyslexia, but people without the mentioned problems will be able to use some of its functions.

The main highlight of the new mode is that it works at the system level, which means that all kinds of settings can be configured, regardless of the application used.

Google also made available a speed-controlled text-to-speech feature with a choice of “natural-sounding voices” to choose from, and support for English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

In addition, the digital car key function has been updated, which allows you to use your smartphone instead of a car key. Now users can share these same digital keys. It is possible to view activity and control access to the machine. Currently, this feature is only supported by Pixel 6 and iPhone smartphones, but the list will expand in the near future.

While the Google ADT-3 is no longer available, Android TV 13 and Google TV 13 Developer Previews are still only available for this device. For now, the only way out for them is the Android TV OS emulator in Android Studio.
