This ubiquitous bug is a painful reminder that Android Auto updates are a big mess

News Tech: It is quite hazardous to install the most recent Android Auto upgrades because occasionally these new releases end up doing more harm than good. Unfortunately, users have to learn everything the hard way, and it turns out that a fresh lesson has just become available thanks to the latest Android Auto update. More specifically, one of the most recent Android Auto versions seems to be wreaking havoc in the car, as it stops the app from running for no clear reason. In other words, after updating Android Auto to the latest stable version, the app fails to load, with users only getting a message that the launch wasn’t completed.

However, Samsung smartphones seem to be primarily affected by the bug, though the aforementioned Google forums thread also includes reports from owners of devices from other brands. In all cases, Android Auto exhibits similar behavior, as the app fails to launch after a recent update.

At first glance, Android Auto 7.8 appears to be the culprit, though someone says on Google’s forums that going back to an earlier release doesn’t produce any improvement. In other words, the one to blame could be a server-side change that Google quietly made to Android Auto and which isn’t linked with a specific Android Auto release.

Google has already launched an investigation, but for now, it’s not known if and when a fix could receive the go-ahead. Given that Samsung’s phones are primarily hit by the bug, the South Korean company should also investigate the reports, as one of its recent updates could come with a compatibility error with Android Auto. In the meantime, users are all alone in their struggle to find a fix, and given over 100 of them have already confirmed the problem, it’s pretty clear Google must come up with a patch as soon as possible.
