Android Auto Wireless Supporting More Phones Isn’t All Good News
Google is apparently a lot more committed to Android Auto in the last few months, and after rolling out a major overhaul earlier this year, the search giant is now working on improving the connectivity side as well.
Because everybody hates cables, Google has recently added support for more phones in Android Auto Wireless, albeit as the title says, this isn’t necessarily good news for everyone.
First of all, it’s important to note that previously, only Google’s own phones were supported for Android Auto Wireless. This means the system was only available with Nexus 5X or 6P, Google Pixel or Pixel XL, Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, and Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL.
Starting recently, if you want to use Android Auto Wireless with a non-Google phone, you can do this with Samsung flagships, as Google has added support for Galaxy S8 and S8+, Galaxy S9 and S9+, Galaxy S10 and S10+, Note 8, Note 9, and Note 10.
