    Hello,

    The feature launched with version 3.1 of the Android Auto app but it was only for Google’s Pixel and Nexus devices. At the time, Google said they were “actively working with phone manufacturers on adding software compatibility” for non-Google devices. Now we have more information about compatibility with other devices: It’ll require Android P support. The good news is that we’ve learned wireless Android Auto will be available for more devices. The bad news is, of course, you’ll need Android P on your phone. This new information interestingly not from Google but from a press release from Kenwood, a maker of aftermarket head units. They mention the feature is currently available for all four Pixel devices and the Nexus 6P and 5X. However, Kenwood then says “for other device manufacturers, wireless Android Auto will be implemented with the adoption of Android OS 9.0 or higher.”
