Microsoft’s First Android Device Upgrades Android Auto Experience

Microsoft has started shipping the company’s first Android device Surface Duo, which was officially announced in late 2019.

Customers who pre-ordered the dual-screen Android phone received it earlier this week, and since it runs Google’s operating system, it was apparently just for a while until it Android Auto did not end in the powering car.

And as we said not too long ago, the Surface Duo is believed to provide a fully featured Android Auto experience, only because it is powered by the same Android version as Google or Samsung’s phones.

But thanks to its dual-screen form factor, the Surface Duo can do so much in a car, and these photos published by some of the redditors who bought the device are living proof in this regard.

First and foremost, the experience of Android Auto is much higher than with any other Android phone, so the Surface Duo brings nothing new to this front. But on the other hand, thanks to its design, which also allows for a tablet mode when both displays are open, the Surface Duo also offers you a second larger screen where you can run applications that are powered by Android Auto Are not supported.

For example, the pictures you see here show Android Auto running on the head unit, while the Surface Duo is used. EV Apps. The main drawback here is that the Surface Duo will obviously eat up more space on the console, but on the other hand, you get a significantly increased screen estate with the support of any app being published in the Google Play Store.

One thing to know is that Microsoft’s Surface Duo comes with Android 10 pre-installed, but the Redmond-based software giant has promised that an update for Android 11 will be introduced later.

Android 11 comes with significant improvements to Android Auto, as it unlocks wireless mode for all devices, as long as a compatible head unit is available.
