Recently Google announced they had turned on wireless Android Auto functionality, however it was only available for a few select Pixel and Nexus models.  Despite earlier reports that wireless Android Auto would only be available for Android 9.0 P powered phones, Google as confirmed that they would be working with phone manufacturers to make Android 8.0 Oreo phones to also enable wireless Android Auto compatible.

 

If you don’t have one of the Pixel or Nexus models that are currently enabled for wireless Android Auto, you can try out the Android 9.0 P public beta to test out the wireless functionality. With the public beta there are a few restrictions, not all Android powered phones would be eligible for this program. If you have any of the phones on the list below you’re in luck though.

 

  • Essential Phone
  • Google Pixel 2
  • Google Pixel 2 XL
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Nokia 7 Plus
  • OnePlus 6
  • Oppo R15 Pro
  • Sony Xperia XZ2
  • Vivo X21UD
  • Vivo X21
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S

 

While there is no official release date for Android 9.0 P, we’re probably looking at an August release date if previous rollouts are any indication.
