Android Auto Re-Design UI issues

Hey all!

I'm using the new interface for AA, but have some questions...

Maybe it's just me, but is it annoying that we now just have a notifications button to click to see if we have notifications? I enjoyed having AA plugged in and seeing my weather and any messages that were unread there. Is there anyway to display it as such on the new version?

Also, i no longer have a sound play when a message comes through. Is there a way to fix that as well?

The new UI lost all its AI brain. It is not your fault. But you can still go back to the old UI by uncheck the box.

Actually, I like the new UI much better. To hear your calendar events, weather updates, or agenda updates, there is an application launcher and you just tap on the Google or calendar or agenda icons and that'll read it to you audibly. Same concept you just won't visually see it. As far as I know you have a notifications shade and a an alert you when you have a new message or anything. You tap on it and it reads your messages to you. The multitasking in the new UI is so much better.
