  • Issues plaguing Samsung Galaxy S22 series devices with Android Auto should be resolved with its latest update.
  • The app would be unresponsive, and users would be stuck with a black screen even while plugged in.
  • Some users say it fixed their problem, while others are still facing issues.
  • Android Auto introduced a new feature earlier this summer while also pushing mobile users to utilize its Google Assistant Drive mode.

The issue with the S22 phones may be fixed with the latest update.

Users have voiced their concerns about the app on the help page of the app. The issue should be fixed with the latest update according to a member of the team.

It's possible to use a hands-free phone in a car.

The focus of the issue is the phones in the S22 series. The team member said that users should update their app to version 7.7 and above if they want to get the fix.

The problems with new S22 owners were brought to the attention of the team at the time. It was not clear if the fixed would work long-term after the team issued a patch in May. Some users in the thread are still reporting issues despite the stable update being rolled out, while others say the update fixed their problem.

The phones that weren't functioning properly with Android Auto were the ones that were run by the Pixels. It's worth watching to see how this new update affects those devices, particularly as the stable build of the new version of the operating system was released earlier this week.

The death of Android Auto for phone screens was caused by the renewed focus on Android Auto for car displays, as well as the introduction of new features for cars. A focus on getting quick access to important features and contextual suggestions is one of the things that the split screenUI will adapt to. The assistant drive mode has replaced the auto mode on phones.

Ahead of the bigUI update, which is expected any day now, there is a chance thatandroid auto will be in top shape.
