Operating systems are incredibly complex pieces of software, so it’s probably not surprising that despite several beta releases, some bugs have penetrated the final release of Android 11. The update clearly caused problems with Android Auto, due to which some drivers are unable to play music or read notifications.
There have been many reports on social media of issues with Android Auto after the Android 11 update, including music cutting in and out, no notification sounds, no calendar app, general connectivity problems, voice not working, and car rooting. Is not being done. Stereo. There are at least two reports of an auto soft-bricking connected phone (in one case a Pixel 3 XL), forcing the owner to reset the device, which still does not fix issues with Android Auto.
One possible solution was discovered by Reddit users Yewtsan and mtb_junkie, including turning off Bluetooth device scanning in the phone’s settings. While Google has not yet promised a solution to all of the above issues, the Android Auto v5.6 update has already been released with a fix for the missing calendar app.
