Google has announced Wi-Fi wireless support for Android Auto, and the first set of devices to enjoy it are their own Nexus and Pixel range. With Android Auto Wireless, you will no longer need to connect your smartphone to your car via a USB cable. All you need is a Bluetooth connection.
Android Auto Wireless: Goodbye To Cables!
As a matter of fact, you do not have to take your phone out of your bag or pocket to use it with your car. Once paired the first time, every time you get into your car, your smartphone will automatically connect with the car’s system and you can interact with Android Auto on your car’s display.
While the feature will be available to all Android smartphones, the first set of devices to get it are Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P devices running Android Oreo and initial support is limited to the USA.
Also, Google says that JVC and Kenwood head units supporting Android Auto Wireless are in the market already. More smartphones and accessories will be supported across more countries in the future.
