No doubt it makes your driving experience pleasant, but if you expect more from Android Auto, then you must check the following tweaks to make it even better.

1. Force Day or Night Mode

With default settings, Android Auto automatically switches between day and night modes. In case you want to use the dark or light theme all the time, then you need to alter the Android Auto developer settings.

Similar to Android smartphone developer options, Android Auto also has a secret menu with additional settings. Here’s how you can enable it:

  1. Launch the Android Auto app on your phone and select About – available on the left menu.
  2. Now, you need to tap on the About Android Auto heading approximately ten times, and you will see a dialog box with a message which reads “Allow Development settings.” Here, tap on OK to enable it. Next, tap on the Menu (three-dot) button and select Developer settings.
  3. Under Developer Settings, you will explore various new options. Here, you need to tap on Day/Night to switch between phone-controlled and car-controlled settings.

2. Autolaunch

With default settings, you have to manually launch Android Auto whenever you enter the car to enjoy the services. If you’re one who wants Android Auto to start automatically, then the Autolaunch option is what you need to look at.

  1. In the Android Auto app, select Settings – available on the left menu.
  2. Next, head over to “Phone screen settings” section and select Autolaunch.
  3. Here, you need to move the Autolaunch toggle button to the ONposition.
