I can't test it because I don't have the car yet, but this link provides instructions on "how to force enable Coolwalk without root " . I'd be curious to know - so if anyone gives it a shot, please let me know (you know, in case my car magically appears this week) whether it works.

I just tried that and no luck. Still getting the old interface even with the beta .apk installed.

I was hoping that would not be the case but I installed the beta and it's the old interface too. With some glitches like switching between day and night mode at odd times.

I was just able to opt into Beta via the Play Store. That has been locked out to me for days and just opened up. App immediately updated. Haven't got into the car yet.

For comparison, this is what it looks like in my wife's 2022 CR-V

I don't see it mentioned, but if you are in full screen mode (sync cards are condensed), you can click the map button again to shrink the android cards and return the previous view of map taking up the entire AA screen.

works for the non full screen mode too and it hides the side android cards.

Surprised no one has made a comment about your title and Seinfeld yet. This update looks nice, but don't think it compares to Teri Hatcher's you know what, haha. 😁

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty shocked as well. At least you noticed it, for that you have my thanks 👍🏾. And yes, this update is much needed. It's so much more functional having at least two+ apps displayed at the same time.
