Googe teased the new Android Auto UI featuring called Coolwalk somewhere last year and also teased in IO May 2022 event. It comes with major multitasking features via split-screen. You can use maps, play music, and see important notifications all in one interface.

This is a great design for car displays as you don’t need to keep switching to other apps in order to get important information.

Coolwalk enables the user to run numerous apps side by side in what seems to be a card-based interface. It is cleaner, more organized, and displays information in split-screen. Coolwalk has a UI inspired by Apple CarPlay dashboard.

According to Android Authority, the key highlights include:

  • Google Maps is now larger and easier to access in the new dashboard, which is closer to the driver.
  • The media card on the dashboard has a completely new appearance and dynamically expands and contracts.
  • Users now have more options for layouts on large screens thanks to the ability to make the map occupy the entire Android Auto space.
  • To make it simple to switch between recently used apps with just one tap, a new app dock has been added to the rail.
  • More system components now use Material You and have modernized UI elements and layouts.
  • With just one swipe of the dashboard media card, you can now access Google Assistant’s recommendations for music and other media.
