Google Android 11 will support wireless Android Auto connectivity on most phones

Before now, car owners were able to connect to Android Auto via a USB cable, wireless Android Auto connectivity was only supported by Google’s Pixel and Nexus and a few number of Samsung Galaxy phones. Since the announcement in 2018 with Android 9 Pie, the list has gradually expanded. However, Google has revealed that Android 11 which will be rolled out few weeks from now will support wireless Android Auto connectivity with compatible cars and on most phones.

Google confirmed the good news through an update in its Android Auto’s FAQ page. The company started that "any smartphone with Android 11.0 and 5GHz Wi-Fi" will be able to take advantage of the platform's wireless Android Auto functionality. Most latest smartphones are already eligible for this except some older, low-end and mid-range devices, some of which only have support for 2.4GHz WiFi.

Finally, at the moment, only a few car manufacturers offer wireless Android Auto support, however, Ford and BMW has recently announced that their new car collections have this feature installed. Furthermore, it is important to know that the EU has additional regulatory requirements regarding the use of 5GHz WiFi in cars.

I will not be surprised to see if by the time we get to Android 20, I could drive my Car via my Android Phone. No joking, am looking forward to that and with high appreciation over the latest update albeit wireless car synchronization via Droid Platform. Keep it up guys.
