Google assistant driving mode

Go to solution Solved by maxmp,

I've been using Poweramp for a number of years on two different phones. Best music player I've had.

I have a problem with the Google assistant driving mode where the gui just shows me a bunch of large buttons marked "shuffle" and no indication of what they might be shuffling (tracks artists albums?)

I'm having a problem inserting a screenshot, I will try to add one later. 

To reproduce, enter driving mode by asking Google assistant to navigate to somewhere then tap on the grid icon to open the apps screen and select Poweramp.

Looks like it is suggesting the first item in each of several Categories, which in PA's case would be the Shuffle option for that Category (tap 'All' to see what I mean).

@odlaw added better support for this mode. This is actually new Google maps launcher/media browser which is now supported from build 976. These results are cached it seems - I haven't found a way to reset the cache. I hope Google will fix this soon as for now it just caches top categories (or, top playlists e.g. for Spotify) forever.
