After several trips with friends, I know which configuration cannot be missing in my Android Auto this summer

Android Auto is one of the most used systems for many of us when we have to make any kind of trip. If you have a trip planned in the next few weeks, it is likely that you will end up sharing it with your group of friends, your family or a coworker with whom you have decided to go on a getaway.

Although the company surely makes your road trip more enjoyable, do not forget to configure Android Auto pto prevent your notifications from being visible to everyone inside the vehicle, especially those from WhatsApp or social media apps.

Notifications without content

Restricting all notifications is not a good idea, because we may miss a message from someone that may be important. However, there is a middle ground where we can configure our Android Auto so that it does notify us of new messages, but does not show the content of the same until we open the specific application or pick up our smartphone. This is the most recommended mode if you have in mind a trip during this summer and you prefer ensure your privacy in case you share the vehicle with more people.

In this case, when the app arrives a message will appear with the text “Tap to hear it”. If you do not interact with it, after a few seconds the notification will disappear completely and you’ll have your navigation apps back in the foreground.

To do this, you must go to the Android Auto settings on your phone and in notifications, you must make sure that you have disabled the option “Show the first line of messages”.

More options

There is a second option that can also be useful and will allow us to guarantee our privacy at all times. In this case, the solution is to deactivate the popup that appears when we receive a new message or any other notification. To do this, we must deactivate the “Show message notifications” option in the same menu that we mentioned previously.

When we have this mode activated, the system will receive all messages of the different applications that we have installed. However, unlike the default configuration, in this case we will not receive any notice in the form of a pop-up notification. However, they will go away accumulating in the notification panel, since the number of pending notifications will increase.

In addition, we can also see how the classic balloon appears in our favorite applications, indicating that we have a series of pending notifications to manage.

Regardless of the option we end up choosing, it is important that we only interact with the apps when we are parked, avoiding any possible distraction we may have at the wheel while we are driving. In this way, we will not only be guaranteeing our safety, but also that of all those around us. Remember that you can always return to the original configuration by checking any option we have selected. previously disabled.
