Android Auto after 10.0 update

 

Some members may have already seen this. My Samsung Galaxy A20 Android phone just got the version 10.0 update today. The first thing I noticed under app settings was Android Auto showing installed. No app was showing on the screen. No option to uninstall but you can disable it. After a little searching found this information below.

I can't find the Android Auto app on my phone
Starting with Android 10, Android Auto is built into the phone as a technology that enables your phone to connect to your car display. This means you no longer have to install a separate app from the Play Store to use Android Auto with your car display.

If you don't have an Android Auto compatible car or prefer to access Android Auto on your phone screen, there are 3 options:

If you're upgrading your phone from Android 9 to Android 10, make sure that your phone already has Android Auto installed before you upgrade. If so, the app icon will carry over to your newly upgraded device.
You can use Google Backup to backup and restore from another device that already has Android Auto app installed.
You can also go to the Play Store and download Android Auto for Phone Screens, which is only available on Android 10 devices. Once you install the app, you can continue to use Android Auto on your phone screen.

My just purchased Galaxy S20+ came with Android Auto built in. Since this was my first experience with Android Auto it took be a while before I realized I didn't need the downloaded app from the Play Store. Live and learn. grin
