Ever thought the new Android Auto background wallpaper is very ugly? You hate anything that is stock and commonly adopted? Ever asked why Android Auto developers won't let the user choose between different backgrounds and just put an horrendous wallpaper?

If yes is the answer to any of the questions above, you are in the right place!

Introducing my first Substratum Theme, and it's all about Android Auto!

►▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬◄



Pre-requsite:
Working substratum (DUH!)


Don't know what the heck is substratum? Here's the official starting guide

Here's a preview of the themes available:



Batman


Van Gogh


Google Now - Mountains by night


Simple grey background


Windows 10 wallpaper


Google Now - London By Night


Windows XP


Windows 10 - Stars



Vehicules manufacturers - Samples

All the other backgrounds preview are available on Google photos


Coming soon:

Android Auto 4.6.5933 is out.

Good news! Android Auto Backgrounds is fully compatible!

If the background is not applied, once updated Android Auto, just rebuild it through Substratum!

Heya! Version 1.5 is live!

Due to some changes to the package, you could face some installation issues. If so, it means that the older version of Android Auto Backgrounds has to be uninstalled, sorry for the inconvenience


Here's what's changed:
  • The app now has a welcome dialog upon launching. It explains how to apply the backgrounds and has a dedicated donate button in case you want to buy me a coffee
  • Added 5 casual wallpapers
  • Added 5 gradients wallpapers
  • Fixed a typo in the Ford ST background in order to follow alphabetical order
