Progress Stripe in Mini Player


Recommended Posts

My Android Auto started using a round progress ring around the Play/Pause icon in an update a year or so ago. I really don't like it though and wish I could switch it back as the horizontal bar seemed much more readable. Even with fairly large buttons, the progress ring is too small to accurately assess at a glance.

Same, I don't like round progress bar around a play button. But I like how YouTube only uses it when showing the countdown to next video.

Yes, round progress rings have some merit for fast-moving counts (maybe 10-20 seconds) but they don't really work well for anything that's meant to indicate several minutes or more.

Would prefer horizontal progress bar too. The white stripe looks pretty good in combination with the dark theme of the app. 

I also would prefer a simple horizontal progress bar.
