Google has recently decided to open up the Android Auto beta testing program to everyone, which means that users wishing to try out the latest improvements to the app can do so by installing initial builds on their devices. In theory, this is good news, especially for advanced users, as they can see what’s coming for Android Auto without waiting for Google to publish a new stable build.
But at the same time, it’s worth knowing that these beta builds come with a higher probability of stability and reliability issues, and as Android Auto itself doesn’t always provide a smooth experience, you should stay away unless know exactly what you are doing.
And that’s how Google has just released another update for Android Auto, but in keeping with the company’s typical approach when new versions of the app are released, little is said about what is included. Android Auto 6.7 is therefore now available for download without any details about what’s new, but on the other hand, there’s a good chance of solving some of the issues that Google itself has recently recognized.
First of all, it’s important to know that this is the first stable version of Android Auto 6.7. Version 6.7 originally hit the web as a beta earlier this month, so if you installed this build using the standalone APK installer, the stable package is unlikely to bring any major changes.
On the other hand, compared to the beta version, Android Auto 6.7 is now distributed via the Google Play Store as well, although you should keep the version as remember that the release takes place in stages, so it can take several days for the new version appears on your device. For now, this new Android Auto 6.7 update is as mysterious as possible, so the article’s author says ‘let us know if you find something new after installing it’.
