Update 26/06/2019: A Google spokesperson told Android Police that Android Auto’s updated in-car interface is not rolling out yet. The Reddit user who got access to the update likely received it by mistake, which has happened before, according to XDA Developers.
The Google spokesperson went on to confirm that the update is still set to hit user’s phones at some point this summer.

The overhauled version of Android Auto is starting to roll out.
Reddit users are reporting that a server-side update is releasing to some users, and it’s bringing the new in-car interface along with it.
So far it seems like only a few people are getting the update, but a user named ‘muirj’ mentioned that they are running Android Auto version ‘4.4.592344.’
It’s worth noting that when I tried to download that app version from APK Mirror, I didn’t get the new interface.
There are still a lot of questions regarding how the new interface runs and the way it acts on the phone when it’s not connected to an in-car display. We’ll update this story once we get the update and can go hands-on with the latest version of Android Auto.
