Volvo Polestar offers an interactive preview of the first native version of Android Auto
Polestar, the electric brand for Volvo, is annoying what will be the first native version of Android Auto in a new demo version of the mobile network that was released on Wednesday. An app-like experience that can be seen on smartphones or tablets allows people to use an early version of the UI that will be launched on Polestar's second car, suitably called Polestar 2, later this year.
To view it, users must click on this link and select "Add to Home" from the sharing list in their mobile browser. After that, they can touch through the new home screen icon to launch a website that simulates the Android Auto UI. This is not fully functional, but it is enough to get a decent sense of what it will be like to sneak through the screen in Polestar 2.
The push to turn Android Auto into a complete operating system that does not require the use of a smartphone began in 2014, but only in the last year we have begun to see the effort footprint in the light. In the past, car manufacturers have used Android to build infotainment systems, but they have had much more control over top-down operations, which has sometimes been to the detriment. The Polestar demonstration shows that Android Android Auto still allows plenty of freedom when it comes to user interface design (especially when it contrasts with the much more familiar version Volvo demonstrates last year). But as this is a more limited system, there are essentially more guidelines that hope to mean a more consistent and reliable experience. With the added value of access to the app store, the native Android Auto can become a point of sale for the next few years.
