Google has started to notify users that the Android Auto for Phone Screens app (Android Auto on the phone) will soon stop working.
This message appears in the center of the screen of the Android Auto for Phone Screens application and, unfortunately, does not contain other details. It looks like the app will be shutting down for good soon, but so far Google hasn’t announced a date for when that will happen.
This didn’t come as too much of a surprise as Google had already disabled the feature in 2021 on newer Android phones. Starting with Android 12, the Android Auto for Phone Screens app is not available for installation and will not even run correctly if somehow installed. Google, in fact, turned off this feature for new devices, but at that time kept it for older versions of the platform. Now the same thing is happening with Android 11 and older versions of Android.
As an alternative, Google offers a more modern Google Assistant driving mode.
