According to AndroidCentral, the new menu was activated through the Material3SettingsActivity component that was implemented in version 8.5 of Android Auto.
The novelty brings several options such as the long-awaited Dark Mode and compatibility with Material You from Android 12, which applies colors based on the wallpaper in various areas of the system.
Further changes include greater detail for the settings page title and larger toggle buttons for activating features. Despite this, there are still some inconsistencies in the design, as not all Material Design elements have been replaced.

The new Android Auto settings menu on mobile brings support for dark mode for everyone, which means you won’t have to face a bright screen at night and you’ll still have Material You with support for dynamic system themes, which follow the color of the your wallpaper.
The news is present in Android Auto 7.5 which is not yet available to everyone on Google Play, but can already be activated manually by Dylan Roussel from the 9to5Google portal, which means that it can be released at any time by the Search Giant.
