Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Every few weeks for so, Google updates the Android Auto website with a list of newly-supported cars. This time around, though, there are far more cars (and head units) than usual from a wide variety of brands that have just had AA support added.

Here's the list of cars:

  • Audi
    • A8 (2018+)
    • coming soon
      • A1 Sportback (2019+)
      • Q3 (2019+)
      • Q8 (2018+)

    • Berlingo (2018+)
    • C4 SpaceTourer (2018+)

    • coming soon
      • C5 Aircross (2019+)
  • DS
    • DS4 Crossback (2017+)
    • DS7 Crossback (2018+)

Android Auto v3.5 fixes crashing on phones with Android 9 Pie [APK Download]

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Android Auto hasn't been playing nice with Android 9 Pie. There have been reports left and right of numerous bugs: missing text notifications, a disruptive buzzing sound in calls, and frequent crashes. Fortunately, the Android Auto team is aware of these issues, and reports that it's fixed at least one — Android Auto version 3.5 should solve the crashing problem.

Previously, running Google Maps or Waze on a phone updated to Android 9 Pie with an Android Auto head unit resulted in the in-car display going black or Android Auto crashing and restarting entirely.

BeyondPod has been removed from Android Auto, but a fix is in the works

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

In an interesting twist, BeyondPod, a podcast manager that has been around since seemingly the beginning of Android, has been removed from Android Auto. This isn't entirely surprising - prior to this April, it hadn't had a public update in two years, and people had been complaining about the huge amount of bugs.

BeyondPod was once one of the greatest podcast managers out for Android, and it still has its fans.

Review: Pioneer’s $700 wireless Android Auto head unit is a great concept that needs polish

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

In theory, Android Auto is a fantastic idea. It brings a unified UI, Google's class-leading Maps, and seamless integration with your music, notifications, and calls to any car or head unit that supports it. But aside from the various bugs and issues that seem to continually crop up, I'd argue that Android Auto's biggest downside is having to plug and unplug your phone whenever you enter and exit your car. As a result, many people, including myself, were pretty excited to see wireless Android Auto debut at CES this year with new head units from JVC and Kenwood.

Google Podcasts support on Android Auto seems imminent

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Google launched its own Podcasts app back in June. It's a pretty well-rounded app with over 2 million indexed podcasts and a nice UI, but it was missing one thing that any Google-made audio app should support: Android Auto. We first noticed a 'Google' option popping up in Auto a few weeks ago, though it doesn't really work unless you start a podcast from your phone. That's probably about to change.

Fix for glitchy Google Maps visuals in Android Auto rolling out now

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Back in April, users reported to Google that their Android Auto head units were showing weird, glitchy visuals under some circumstances. A fix was promised for sometime in June, but the month came and went with no resolution. Google has acknowledged this, though, and says a fix is rolling out now.

The rollout is coming in stages as part of a Google Play Services update and should be complete in "a few more weeks." The team doesn't seem entirely sure they've nailed down the problem, though, asking users to provide further information if the problem persists past the rollout window.

Waze now works in standalone Android Auto on your phone

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

When Waze finally added support for Android Auto last year, it unfortunately required a proper Auto head unit, a discovery that tainted the good news. That's no longer the case as Waze recently started working in the standalone version of Auto, the one that uses your phone as a display and doesn't necessitate any other additional gear.

If you have both Android Auto and Waze installed on your phone, you can tap on the navigation icon in the Auto menu and you should see both Google Maps and Waze as options.

Android Auto comes to South Korea with support for popular local apps

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

South Korea has been added to the official list of territories where Android Auto is supported, bringing the total number of countries with full access to the platform to 32. Android Auto Wireless is still only available in the US, Canada, and Mexico, though, so South Koreans will have to connect with a USB cable.

The platform supports several apps popular in the region, like navigation app Kakaonavi and media apps such as Genie Music — handy, since Google Maps support is spotty in the country and Spotify and Google Play Music are unavailable.
