Google has stated that it would discontinue its standalone “Android Auto for Phone Screens” app beginning with Android 12. Instead, anybody looking for a driving-friendly interface for their Android phone can utilise the Google Assistant driving mode, which is accessible within Google Maps, or the native Android Auto interface, which is available in select automobiles, according to The Verge.
Google will phase out the Android Auto mobile app for Google Assistant
Google’s confirmation came after a news outlet 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. Meanwhile, there are also reports that the ‘‘Android Auto for Phone Screens’’ app now says it’s incompatible with Pixel devices running on Android 12.
In a statement, Google said, “For those who use the on phone experience (Android Auto mobile 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 has said that the experience won’t be changing for anyone using Android Auto in compatible cars.
