Google stops using Android Auto for mobile

The mobile version of Android Auto has been discontinued for good, and the app is now “only available for car screens”. Earlier this month, users started receiving a warning through Android Auto, saying the app won’t open on smartphones anytime soon.

The option Google left for Android Auto users was the Google Assistant Driving Mode, which was announced in 2019 but actually released in September 2021.
