Android Auto is acquiring a big change in the app icons and status, especially on Samsung devices. Google rolling out a new 11.0 version update for Android Auto which modifies the look of the app icons to offer users a better visual and elevated user experience.
With the latest versions of Android Auto, users with Samsung devices may notice that the app icons in the app drawer and along the task switcher have switched from their default circular shapes to squircle to match the design that is implemented in One UI custom skin.
In addition, Android Auto status icons are also getting changed with the latest version, rather than showing the cellular/Wi-Fi and battery icons from Pixels, Samsung users will find that Android Auto now shows the same icons found on a Galaxy device.
To be mentioned, this change only applies when a Samsung Galaxy device is connected. Simultaneously, the modification is rolling out via the beta track, and currently, there is no information available about its availability for public users.
