Android Auto now shows weather in status bar as over 70 new cars add support

Now, after experimenting with its design a bit, Google is adding a weather icon to Android Auto’s status bar.

Spotted by , Google is now rolling out a weather icon next to the temperature icon on Android Auto. The temperature icon rolled out last year but was marked as “Weather” in Auto’s settings menu. Now, Google has added an extra icon to fulfill that name.

From what’s been spotted so far, this icon changes for weather conditions such as sun, rain, snow, and cloudy days too. It’s unclear at the moment, though, exactly how many icons can be shown.

Is this somehow better than just looking out of the window? Not really, but it’s a nice touch. Plus, Google could, in theory, expand on this sort of functionality by adding options for also seeing the weather at your destination location or perhaps showing a brief forecast for the next few hours or few days. After all, there’s not much else in Auto’s status bar and functions like those would be a welcome touch.
