Google Maps Android Auto

Google Maps has introduced some impactful design changes to its Android Auto app to enhance visibility and user experience.

Now, when you look at the map, the places you go often, like your home and work, stand out with bigger, bolder icons. This change is particularly noticeable in dark mode, where the contrast is more prominent.

In addition to icon updates, the search bar at the top looks cleaner. The previous surrounding bar has been removed from the search bar, adding to the clean and contrasted appearance of the UI.

Furthermore, if you like seeing buildings pop up in 3D when you’re looking at the map on your phone, you’ll be happy to know that now the same setting will work in your car too. They added this cool 3D view earlier, but it didn’t work in the car until now.

These updates not only improve functionality but also ensure a seamless change between mobile and car navigation.

Google Messages Selfie GIF feature

Google Messages is enhancing its messaging service by introducing a new feature that allows users to create a Selfie GIF. This feature enables users to record animated GIFs of up to three seconds directly within the messaging app.

The search giant also integrated a quick-access prompt within chats for creating these GIFs, similar to other interactive prompts for sharing photos or initiating video calls.

To use this feature, one must long-press the camera icon in a message thread, which will bring up the camera viewfinder and gallery. The Selfie GIF option is separate from the app’s custom camera.

The recording process of Selfie GIF is very intuitive with a countdown to guide users in Google Messages. Although there are no editing options, users can manually start and restart recording. The completed GIFs are automatically saved to the user’s camera roll, making sharing easy.

The support documentation for the Selfie GIF feature is already available, but the feature itself has not been widely released on either the beta or stable versions of the app. Hopefully, Google will soon make it available for Android users.
