[Android Automotive] Search view needs refinement

[Android Automotive] Search view needs refinement






Polestar 2

Operating System



My Question or Issue

When using the search function, there's at least two issues that makes it less user-friendly and more scary to use as you're driving.

- It does not show a list of the recent searches, so you always need to type

- When you have found a song, pressed it for playing, when you press the BACK-ARROW, you're taken to the main home screen, not the search view you found the song. To get back there, you have to press the search-button again.


Bonus, feature request:

I would like to be able to queue songs...

Thanks Elena, however, it feels very antiquated that we need to create an "idea" to get something working in AAOS that already exists as default in the normal Android app, making it more road-friendly even.


But I'll get that going, I'm having many "ideas" based on a cool app I've tried, "Spotify".
