Google introduces wireless Android Auto for Pixel, Nexus phones

Android Auto itself has developed as a full-fledged Apple CarPlay competitor, with support for a range of apps from Waze to Google Play Music to Spotify and so on.

To get Android Auto Wireless working properly, you will need a head unit that features WiFi connectivity.

Once you have that set up, you will need either a Pixel or Nexus device and the Android Auto v3.1 update.

So far, the support appears to only be for devices in North America, and the only head units that work wirelessly are available from JVC and Kenwood.

Google has heard your prayers and is rolling out Android Auto wireless right now, via AndroidPolice.

If you don't have a Nexus or Pixel device, don't lose hope but I wouldn't count on a quick solution. You'll just need supported equipment to take advantage of it.

Google has launched Android Auto Wireless for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Whether you have a new car that doesn't support Android Auto, or an older vehicle that predates ...

Google no doubt has more plans up its sleeve for this product, and we'll be watching Google I/O closely to see what develops.

Once you have all of the components, connect your smartphone to the head unit via a USB cable, then sync the devices.

If you're one of the lucky ones who can get this to work, let us know in the comments what the experience is like!
