Google Tests a New Car Mode UI for the Google Maps App

Recently Google has added a new feature in Google Maps, which is known as the “Covid-19 layer,” and now Google is all set to launch a new care mode UI for Google Maps. The new interface is currently in beta testing and is available to only a few Google Maps users. The new interface will introduce big buttons in the app. Using these buttons, Google Maps users can quickly navigate through the Google Maps app while they are driving their car.

The new car mode UI is somewhat similar to Android Auto navigation UI. However, it’s not entirely identical to the Android Auto navigation UI. The UI features two buttons. On the left-hand side, you get a microphone button that you can use to launch the Google Assistant on your mobile. Similarly, on the right-hand side, you get a menu button/ home button that will launch a new screen, which will include all the essential apps of your phone like calls app, messages app, Spotify app, YouTube Music app, etc.

Right above it, you will see the music playback controls in the app. Besides this, there is no change in the main Google Maps screen and Navigation UI. When you tap on the menu button and click on the icons, you will see their respective screen along with large UI buttons and cards on your mobile.

The new car mode Ui is very similar to Android Auto phone UI. But it’s not entirely identical to Android Auto navigation UI (Which is going to be replaced by the “Assistant Driving mode” in the near future).

The new car mode UI is currently in beta testing and is available to only a few Google Map users. Besides this, Google has not revealed when this new car mode UI will be available for all the Google Maps users. So, if you haven’t received the new car mode UI on your Google Maps app, then you will have to wait a little bit longer to get your hands on it.
