These Samsung Galaxy phones now support Android Auto Wireless

Google is finally making Android Auto Wireless available to non-Google smartphones, and the first third-party devices to take advantage of the feature are the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 series, as well as the Galaxy Note 8, Note 9, and Galaxy Note 10. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are also listed, but the Galaxy S10e is not.

Android Auto Wireless was first introduced to Pixel and Nexus smartphones more than a year ago. The feature is true to its name and allows smartphones to deliver the Android Auto experience wirelessly to in-car head units.

Android Auto Wireless comes to Galaxy phones

Initially, Google intended the feature to work out of the box with any smartphone running Android 9 or higher, but in reality, support has been limited to only a handful of Google phones. This is no longer the case, and now, Android Auto Wireless is essentially available on more third-party Galaxy devices than first-party Google phones.

Car owners still require a vehicle equipped with a head unit that supports Android Auto Wireless. They also must install version 4.7 (or higher) of the Android Auto app on their phones. Google will likely continue extending support to more devices, but it remains to be seen if any mid-range Galaxy phones will make it in the next wave.

I’m not going to go buy a new car just to get Android Auto capability.
