  1. Heya!

    I'm currently running version 905 of PA, and great news for the tabbed view in Android Auto!

    I think, though, that the Android Auto experience can be revised as following:

    1) If I get this correctly, Poweramp shows 4 tabs: Library, Playlist, Album and Folders hierarchy. Which is great, it takes all the 4 available slots but:

    • There will be rendundancy between elements in library view and tabs indicators so, e.g. if I choose to show playlists in library view, I'll get a tab and a tile for it
    • Removing one item from library view will also remove the tab

    So I think that 

    1. Tabs should be user-configurable
    2. Poweramp should avoid showing an item in library view if it's shown as a tab

    2) Action buttons in playback view do not take advantage of all the slots available. A total of 9 actions can be configured on Android Auto (one of which shows the secondary actions) and right now PA shows 5 primary actions and 2 secondary actions. Allow me to suggest some actions that can be ported to Android Auto:

    1. Fast forward-Fast rewind
    2. Buttons for like/dislike
    3. Button to add a bookmark

    I don't know if those are technically possible:

    1. Button to add to a playlist: once pressed it will bring up the list of playlists for adding the track and destroys view afterward
    2. Button to go to artist: similar to number but goes to artist view
    3. Button to go to album: as above



  2. Hi! I know Android Auto a fair bit, so allow me to explain some things.

    Android Auto does output audio via USB when connected in wired mode and via Wi-Fi when connected Wirelessly.

    Bluetooth is not used for media streams in Android Auto. It's used for routing phone calls to the car and for comunicating WiFi SSID + Encryption key to the phone for wireless connection. 

    Android Auto has a AAC Encoder which outputs in MP4A-LATM at 512000 bits per second. Basically Android Auto takes the whole audio processing and whatever it receives from a media stream it outputs it to the car with its encoding solution.

    The downside of casting your whole interface is that notifications, ringtones, and other system sounds would get cast too. If you just cast directly from PA (as an Output option) then you'd presumably just get the clean music stream.


    Plus you can't cast your whole device to devices like Google Home
