Reviews From google play store

works well until i get a call or use the google assistant. after a call the audio switches back to my phone. if i was listening to music before the call after the call the music is coming out of my phone. also, after i use the google assistant it gets stuck on the assistant prompt (when i go to adjust the volume it shows me the volume for the assistant.) sometimes audio wont play, i have to unplug my device and plug it back in. lg g7 on 2016 jetta gli.


Improves the driving experience massively. I no longer have to worry about getting lost, or running out of music too listen to. It's also great having Google Assistant without even having to press anything. I highly recommend using this if your car supports it.


Still continues to hang. I need to unplug everything and plug it back in. I've tried replacing the chord with recommended model. No help. Also don't understand the pattern of what you can do when you're driving vs what you have to wait until a car is stopped but that might be a Honda thing


STILL A bug filled hot mess. On Waze the report button randomly disappears STILL no notification sound for calls and texts. Typical Google beta. Can't enter map issues in Waze. Waze sometimes doesn't create directions after I choose a destination, or from my calendar, sometimes I choose a result, and then it disappears, or just shows the destination, but no option to start navigation. Minimizes itself after opening so Voice doesn't work. Voice recognition still poor


my only gripe is after I end a call it loses connection and I have to unplug and plug back in. other than that is amazing. (update) it was my lg v20 that was the problem... new Samsung s10e never has an issue.


navigation works well with google maps. sms readout works well. msg on whatsapp groups have an error in reading out sender's name. replying or sending messages works well. audible works well. i forward and rewind with voice command doesnt work. itunes sound quality is ok. navigation and selection of songs needs physucal intervention. audio commands dont work well.


google play music usually craps out within minutes. galaxy s8.. 2019 honda... Love the concept, but I want to play my playlist. Since new cars dont have aux. plugs and are forced to use android auto or ... the other one. I would rather not have to buy an apple


keeps turning off and on. it's 2019 I really wish this was Bluetooth and not connected with a wire. the app itself is amazing but the problem is when it's plugged in every time I hit a bump the program turns off and on with each bump. I have tried six different wires now and the same issue. If this is Bluetooth only this would not be a problem


I've used this app for awhile and loved it until recently maybe because of an update but I can no longer listen to other media through the car speakers like YouTube or Netflix. I am a passenger a lot using my phone and I loved being able to play anything through the speakers. A little app used to pop up at the bottom of the screen in the truck that said Android Auto but that doesn't happen anymore either. What's the deal?


Android Auto and my Honda are not capable at times. some days I have no problems with them syncing up, other times its a pain. i stopped going to the car dealer and Verizon trying to to solve the problem. I've learned how to sync them myself.


Android Auto is so ingrained to my life that I will literally never buy another car that doesn't support it. When I think about buying new cars now, my first stop is to go to Android Auto website and find the list of compatible cars.


I just bought a new car and with Android Auto the computer system really comes alive. It allows me to use a lot of different apps and a choice of GPS's. It's very handy. There are a few quirks but in not positive that it's the car. It could be me.


it might be my stupid butt. I don't know how to get it to stop automatically activating when I get into the car. I do not like that. other than that it's an amazing app


this app is buggy and causes more distractions and danger by trying to be too smart and limiting features while driving. one particularly annoying bug is when I get a text message I have to accept the permissions on my phone so it tells me when it's safe open the app and accept the permission.. when I click accept it Google's "yes" and comes up with the results of the band "Yes" pretty freaking stupid if you ask me. I'd rather use a dumb knob. this thing is gonna get someone killed..


Works well enough. i feel some of the features that supposedly make driving more safe actually hinder you. Once i needed to change my destination mid drive for an emergency, i cant use my finger to select a destination or type a single letter because it wants me to use speach. The speach function is so bad it rarely recognizes what im saying, so i then have to unplug my phone, boot up google maps, set my new destination, then put the cable back in, all while driving.


it's sometimes hard to make the app recognize that I wish to exit and use my phone as a regular phone while in the car, otherwise, good so far. Just getting used to it


Why my voice "OK Google" is not working? On phone is OK, but on AA it does not work. So frustrating... Latest update still does not solve the problem. Vocal OK google still does not work on AA (on phone no issue).


Better than the stock OS/UI but needs updating. Feels like Lollipop. Seems kind of clunky somehow.


initailly thought the app didnt work. Turns out i was just using a cheap USB cable. Now it works great! LG G6


Google keeps rereading text messages they've already read. so a new text message starts at the beginning again and again. frustrating, as this is a new issue.
