Google Maps is now bringing 3D buildings to more Android Auto users

What you need to know

  • Android Auto now automatically displays 3D buildings, unlike Google Maps on phones where you need to manually toggle the feature.
  • Google Maps has showcased 3D buildings in select cities for over a decade, but previously, they were absent during point-to-point navigation.
  • 3D buildings in Android Auto only appear when the system is in light mode, and switching to dark mode makes them vanish.

The new Android Auto update that amps up the navigation experience with 3D buildings is hitting more cars now.

9to5Google noticed that Android Auto is displaying 3D buildings now, and the feature is turned on by default. Unlike Google Maps on your phone, which makes you toggle the 3D buildings manually, Android Auto just flaunts them from the get-go.
