Called Fermata Media Player, this new app isn’t just a music player, but also a video player, and the best of all is that it comes with support for Android Auto too.

Offered as an open-source app with a super-straightforward UI, Fermata allows you to play media files in your folders, so you have full control over your library. There are several other Android Auto music players out there that can handle local libraries, but Fermata promises a smooth experience from one end to another with extras like support for favorites and playlists, CUE and M3U playlists, bookmarks, and shuffle and repeat functions.

Furthermore, Android users can configure audio effects and playback speed for each track and folder, something that certainly comes in handy if you wish to have custom settings for specific songs.

All these features are also available on Android Auto, and the best of all is that this new music player also comes with support for steering wheel controls. In other words, you can control the music playback from the steering wheel without touching the car’s display.

When installing the app, you need to also deploy the fermata-auto-control APK installer to enable steering wheel and install the AA Phenotype Patcher to enable the Android Auto experience. Full details are on the official GitHub page of the project right here.

One of the best things about Fermata is that is also comes with video support, although you should already know that playing clips while driving is something you really shouldn’t do for obvious reasons.

Fermata requires Android 6.0 and newer, which means the majority of users should be able to install the app just fine. Make sure you check out the full instructions on the GitHub page to get all features of the app working in your car with Android Auto.
