With Android Auto you can use Google Assistant to route to your next destination with real-time Global Positioning System navigation and traffic alerts using either Google Maps or Waze, get updates in real-time on your route, including hazards and ETA, check your calendar, and even set reminders. At I/O, Google has announced the Assistant Driving Mode and a spokesperson confirmed that this new expertise would replace the Auto app's phone interface. This move comes after Google failed to deliver its new in-car navigation experience: Assistant Driving Mode.

But why is Google releasing an alternative? Although apps are screened for malware and other malicious components before apps are allowed into Google Play, the search and mobile giant has been accused of not doing enough to weed out malicious apps before they make it to users' devices. The Android Auto icon reportedly disappears from the app drawer on phones powered by the latest iteration of the Android OS. If you have Android 10 and an Android Auto compatible vehicle, you can project to your vehicle display without downloading this app.
The app might be a legacy model of Auto, with the same phone interface we know. Once it arrives, the newly launched "Android Auto for phone screens" app should no longer be required. With the new app, users can simply launch the app, as they would do with other apps, and access the entire Auto experience like earlier.

By integrating its Google Play Protect technology, which serves as Android's built-in antimalware engine, with each of its partners' scanning engines, the collective effort will help to better screen apps before they are approved for users to download.
It would be interesting to see what Google does with this new app once the Assistant Driving Mode goes live. If you have Android 10 and an Android Auto compatible vehicle, you can project to your vehicle display without downloading this app. Does it get rid of it completely or let it die eventually?More news: Teacher accused of sex with student 46 years her junior found dead
