As the name implies, the version of Android called as Car It is strictly aimed at vehicles. Either because they have the function integrated in the car console, or because the app is used exclusively on the phone, Android Auto makes driving easy since it allows you to be connected safely, without distractions and staying entertained. Not that I get too much news, but lately it's on a roll.
The new Android Auto interface reaches everyone, this time seriously

You cannot hide some apps considered essential, such as Google Maps or the phone.
This new customization may appear available, but not yet operational: Google will activate it soon. Further, Android Police he has also discovered that Car added a persistent notification to incorporate the outside temperature.
