Browsing views provide lists or grids of content in popular categories for users to browse.
Browsing views should showcase tailored content, rather than broad categories that will be too large to browse easily while driving.
Tailored content might include content that is:
- Frequently used – for example, playlists or channels
- Preferred – for example, favorite artists
- Timely – for example, recent songs
- Curated – for example, “recommended for you”
Within each browsing view, content can be presented either as a grid or as a list. Indicators can be used to identify content that is explicit, new, or in progress.
Selecting a content item in a grid or list either opens up a view of lower-level items (such as songs on an album) or plays the item. Selecting a playable item opens up the playback view.

List views are best when users rely on reading text and viewing data to make their selections. Content can be organized into categories separated by subheaders.
Content indicators can be used to identify content in the following categories:
