In this guide, we will show you a couple of methods to enable the CoolWalk UI in Android Auto. Allowing us to mirror the functionalities of your Android device over to the car’s dashboard, this offering from the Silicon Valley giant was for long in dire need of a UI overhaul. And back in May 2022, Google did announce that they will be rolling out a new UI for the same.
Dubbed as CoolWalk, it brings in a slew of noteworthy features. In this regard, it’s the ability to interact with multiple windows at once [such as Music and Maps] that took away all the limelight. Likewise, you also get a new taskbar from where you could easily access your recent apps. And some of these goodies are even packed in the Material You theming style.
So the anticipation surrounding its launch was completely justified. However, several months later, this UI is still yet to make its appearance for general users. With that said, there does exist a couple of nifty workarounds that should help you enable the CoolWalk UI in Android Auto. So without further ado, let’s check them out.
