Samsung smartphones can now connect to Android Auto wirelessly

Around a month ago, we reported that a user has found a way to use Android Auto wirelessly on his OnePlus 7 Pro. While the feature was limited to certain countries and phones back then, it’s now available for all the recent Samsung flagship devices.

Google has updated its support document (via Android Police) to include a number of Samsung smartphones which can now take benefit of the wireless Android Auto. According to the document, wireless Android Auto is supported on Galaxy S8/S8+, S9/S9+, S10/S10, and Note 8/9/10. You will, however, need Android 9.0 or above and Android Auto app version 4.7 and up to use it. You will also need a high-quality cable for the initial setup.

Google has supported both Pixel and Nexus devices in the past but Samsung will be the first non-Google manufacturer to get official support for wireless Android Auto. Do note that you will need an aftermarket system and the feature is still supported in the USA, Canada and Mexico.
