The Assistant Driving Mode Dashboard Is Getting Shut Down By Google

It was stated at Google’s 2019 I/O developer conference that the Assistant Driving Mode Dashboard would be discontinued. 

According to 9To5Google, Google will turn down the Assistant Driving Mode Dashboard completely on November 21. 

According to the article, Google Maps with Android’s Driving Mode, which provides an experience tailored to use in a car, will remain available. 

Call and message shortcuts, as well as volume and playback settings, are conveniently located in one place on the home screen. 

As soon as the navigation system is activated, quick routes can be accessible. There’s a black bar at the top where you can access Google Assistant, and below that is a grid of icons for different streaming services like YouTube Music & Google Podcasts.

Voice shortcuts are also available for phoning and texting. Compared to the Driving Mode Dashboard, it is significantly more straightforward,” according to the report.

According to the source, this shift means Google no longer offers a straight replacement for Android Auto for Phone Screens. 

In 2019, Google said that it would roll out a voice-enabled driving mode on Assistant, which would not only personalize suggestions for navigation, texts, calling, plus media, but also bring all necessary actions to the forefront. 

As soon as the user pairs their phone with the car’s Bluetooth, the Assistant will switch to driving mode.

The user can just say, “Hey Google, let’s drive,” even if their phone isn’t linked to the car. 

In addition to “driving mode,” Google has also announced that its Assistant will soon be able to be used to remotely control vehicles. For example, before getting into the car, a user may ask Google to turn up the heat.
