But despite Android Auto becoming a more common feature behind the wheel, there was one major drawback: The app was only available in a limited number of countries, at least officially, so users can’t enable it in their cars regardless of Android device Were. They were using.
This is being addressed later this week, as Google announced the largest expansion of Android Auto so far, with the company bringing the app to no fewer than 36 other countries.
In other words, Android Auto is now officially supported in a large number of regions, many of which are in Europe, including Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, Netherlands, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia.
In addition, Google says that it is working to expand Android Auto outside Europe as well, so users in Angola and Botswana are going to get the app in the coming months. According to Google’s announcement, Google customers in Thailand and Indonesia are officially getting Android Auto.
However, it is worth knowing that Android Auto will not be available overnight in the 36 countries added to the list, as the whole process happens slowly. So it will still take some time until Android Auto shows up in your local store (if you use an older Android device) or you can enable it on your smartphone when Android 10 or 11 is installed.
Meanwhile, pretty much no one can use Android Auto in their cars, nothing more than the stand-alone APK installer that they can find here. Of course, this means that they are working completely informally, so support for Android Auto will not be offered if something goes wrong, but with a little luck, everything will be flawless, and no assistance is needed. Will be.
Here is the complete list where Android Auto will go live as part of this expansion:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
