Android Auto now works without wires if you have the right hardware

If you have an Android Auto-capable system in your vehicle, you know that in order for it to work you have to plug your phone in via a USB cable.

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. After 4 months, various owners of the Google Nexus and Pixel devices on Reddit and Google's Product Forums have started to notice the feature quietly go live for them. If you don't have a Wi-Fi certified dash unit already, you'll either need to upgrade or continue using that USB cable.

A member of the Android Auto team confirmed that the feature is now available, and he linked to a new support page that outlines the requirements for devices to support wireless connections to compatible head units.

If you use anything besides a Nexus or Pixel phone, I wouldn't hold my breath for Android Auto Wireless support.

Once you have all of the components, connect your smartphone to the head unit via a USB cable, then sync the devices. Google doesn't say so, but you most likely have to be running the stock firmware as well, which means you custom ROM users out there will have to flash back to stock.

Android Auto has been working towards wireless support for quite some time now, and it looks like the feature is now finally rolling out.
