Google Confirms That Android Users Will No Longer Have Access To Android Auto App

Google has confirmed it is shutting down the standalone ‘Android Auto for Phone Screens’ app with Android 12, media reports said.

Instead, anyone who wants a driving-friendly interface for their Android phone should use the Google Assistant driving mode, which is available within Google Maps, or the native Android Auto interface available in select cars reports The Verge.

“For those who use them on phone experience (Android Automobile app), they will be transitioned to Google Assistant driving mode,” Google said in a statement.

“Starting with Android 12, Google Assistant driving mode will be a built-in mobile driving experience. We have no further details to share at this time, the company said, adding that the experience isn’t changing for anyone using Android Auto in compatible cars.

Google’s confirmation came after XDA Developers reported that some users were seeing a message in the ‘Android Auto for Phone Screens’ app that said the service is “now only available for car screens” and pointed phone users towards Google Assistant driving mode as a replacement.

In a statement, Google said:

“For those who use the on-phone experience (Android Automobile app), they will be transitioned to Google Assistant driving mode. Starting with Android 12, Google Assistant driving mode will be the built-in mobile driving experience. We have no further details to share at this time.”

Google came up with a formal announcement regarding the discontinuation after a few users complained that they were being redirected to the Google Assistant driving mode when they tried to enter the Android Auto for Phone Screens application. The Android Auto app is also not compatible with some Pixel devices that are running on Android 12.
