Android Auto may not get as much attention as Waymo, Google's more exciting and mysterious self-driving car technology, but it's chugging along. While no cool new features were unveiled at I/O—and quite frankly, we’re still waiting for the Waze integration we were promised at last year’s event—Google's clearly been busy putting Android Auto directly into cars.

The final release of Android O may bring about a feature that's long been a staple of custom ROMs and a favorite among modders – support for custom themes. Seeing as how this has been one of the major incentives to get your phone rooted in the past, it only makes sense that Google finally implements this functionality into Android. Nothing is set in stone at this point, so don't get your hopes too high, but we noticed an interesting new option in the "Display" settings page in Android O Developer Preview 2 on the Pixel, which wasn't there before. It's called "Device ...

At last year’s Google I/O conference, we were greeted with a preview of Android Instant Apps. The idea behind them is to broaden exposure while also saving on data and storage. Where a natively downloaded Android application may be several dozen megabytes (or a few hundred megabytes) in size, not including related overhead storage or amount of data used, Android Instant Apps use only a fraction of both.
