Android 11 users are complaining about problems with Android Auto.

Anyone who has used something like this will most likely agree that it is very convenient to synchronize a smartphone with a car. Even just connecting via Bluetooth with the ability to dial from the head unit is already good, but if we talk about systems like CarPlay or Android Auto , then it’s generally super. We are most interested in Android Auto, but it still has too many problems. Especially often, they began to complain about problems after the release of Android 11. This is especially disappointing, because it was in this operating system that the smartphone’s wireless connection function was supposed to appear. At the same time, the problems that users complain about are very serious, and they simply cannot ignore what is happening.

Complaints about Android Auto

The main goons, in addition to those that were before, began to appear just last week, after Android was released to the masses . Before the release, it was impossible to say that the problems were predictable, but after the release took place, what is called “broke through”. To regular problems, something was added that was not particularly expected at first.

Google may not link Android Auto directly to system updates, but major updates can be a source of bugs when running in a car. As our colleagues at Android Police recently noted, it looks like this is specific to Android 11.

It seems that the problems that occur when connecting Android Auto to a phone running Android 11 are not of any regular nature, and their occurrence can be very sudden. Moreover, its likelihood varies from person to person. For some, everything works fine and there are no problems, while for others there is always something wrong. In fact, even if something happens to 3-5 percent of users, these are millions of people, and the problem can safely be considered critical.

Some users say music doesn’t play smoothly, others say the Calendar app is missing – though Android Auto v5.6 seems to fix this bug – and still others mention muted notifications and phone calls that don’t go through. car dynamics. Moreover, a couple of people even stated that their smartphone went into such a state that it had to be reset to factory settings. Now this is generally out of the way.

Which smartphones do Android Auto work the worst with?

Since Android 11 cаn only be fully installed on Google Pixel smartphones, the problem cannot be called massive for our country. We do not have many of these smartphones, although we do have their fans, which was proved by the number of comments and reviews in our Telegram chat that followed our feature articles. Since we have significantly fewer users of this smartphone than in the US, we have to look for answers there.

If you go through foreign sites or just forums, then journalists, bloggers and ordinary people do not often complain about the occurrence of a problem, but this is still only a certain section of society. As I said above, a few percent of users with such a problem are enough to recognize the problem as a mass one.

Google has not yet reacted to what is happening and did not say that any corrections will be made in the near future. But at the same time, you can be one hundred percent sure that the company is monitoring what is happening, collecting information and probably studying what could have caused this. In the end, as soon as Android 11 is released to more devices, the problem will no longer be just massive, but literally catastrophic .

As it should be in this situation, some users have even found a kind of solution to the problem and a way out. The fact is that disabling Bluetooth device scanning helped them . This action did not help everyone, but in some cases the problem was solved.

Benefits of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay


In general, the use of such systems in the car as Android Auto and CarPlay allow you to make the car a gadget on wheels. Although you won’t use all the features, the smartphone is our constant companion. It has everything from our home address to musical preferences . As a result, all this can be broadcast to the head unit of the car. It turns out that the car becomes, as it were, a continuation of the smartphone.

You open the maps and you have all the bookmarks. You start music and can select a song on the screen of the car’s head unit, and not on a smartphone, as with a simple Bluetooth connection . It’s just convenient and native. It’s good that both Google and Apple are developing this direction. It’s just a pity that from time to time the number of bugs that I would like to avoid in general increases. Let’s see how things will develop further, but for now we’ll have to wait how Google reacts to this and tries to fix it in the next update. Hope you don’t have to wait long.
