Android Auto is finally getting wallpapers and Google Assistant routines
Android Auto users were surprised today when the system gained a fairly notable update containing a new feature and the return of an older one. From what appears to be a server-side update to the latest version of Android Auto, users on Reddit have been reporting the ability to change the system’s wallpaper, which has not been available until now. The update also signals the return of Google Assistant routines, a feature that hasn’t been officially supported since 2018.
Google Assistant routines also seem to be making a return after the feature apparently lost support a couple of years ago. The below screenshot shows it in action after a new routine was created to start a Shark IQ vacuum. Routines can be set up as shortcuts on the launcher and can be added through the smartphone app. In the Android Auto menu’s General settings, select Customize Launcher, which will allow you to add a shortcut, and from there you can add an Assistant action by following the prompt.
