Samsung Galaxy & Note Phones Won’t Need Wires For Android Auto

While we do like what Android Auto has to offer us, it can be a little bit inconvenient that the smartphone needs to be connected to it with a wire when we want to use it. Although a wireless feature was added to the system, only two specific models could support it. Well, more smartphones have been added to the list now.

Android Auto’s help page now states asl Samsung Galaxy and Samsung Note users can now connect to the Android Auto system on their vehicle wirelessly. Of course, the device needs to be running on Android 9.0 or higher while the Android Auto app needs to be version 4.7 or newer.

That really opens up the playing field for Android Auto as Samsung smartphones are more widely use than Google’s smartphone. In the past, only the Google Nexus 5X and Google Nexus 6P could connect wirelessly to the Android Auto along with the Pixel smartphones.
