Android Auto now works with any car! You can connect your phone to a compatible car display, or put your phone in a dock and use Android Auto directly from your phone screen. With a simplified interface, large buttons, and powerful voice actions, Android Auto is designed to make it easier to use apps from your phone while you’re on the road. Navigate with Google Maps, listen to playlists or podcasts from your favorite apps, send messages via voice, and more.

To use Android Auto, you’ll need a phone running Android 5.0 or higher (Lollipop, Marshmallow or Nougat) and an active data connection. You may also need to update some of your existing apps, such as Google Maps, Google Play Music, or Google Search.

To find out if your car display supports Android Auto and how to enable it, check your owner’s manual or contact your car’s manufacturer. Once enabled, connect your phone with a high quality USB cable to your car to launch Android Auto.

    Would it be too much to ask for the developers to say what’s actually new? That information is missing here. For example, “Android Auto now works with any car!” has been touted for the last umpteen releases!

      Are you in South Africa and if how did you down load the App?

      • Andrew DeFaria

        Excuse me Billy but I don’t understand how your question relates to my post which only asked for more detail on what’s new. No I’m not in South Africa and I just clicked the link to download and it worked fine. I would offer to host the apk for you but the US version probably wouldn’t work in South Africa.

    How do we get to download Android Auto in south Africa? Please can you assist?
