While Google sorted out that issue, it appears Android Auto has more challenges. Some early users (yes, some lucky people already have them) of Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have reported connectivity issues when trying to link their smartphones to Android Auto.
This problem manifests as either the phone being unable to initiate Android Auto or the app getting stuck on setup screens. Google has promptly addressed the situation by acknowledging it on their work-in-progress list. The company urges affected users to submit bug reports for further investigation by the Android Auto team.
With the recent 10.6 Android Auto update, Google not only tackled the navigation bar issue but also introduced a practical “Disconnect” button. This feature provides an easy way to end an Android Auto connection with a simple tap, allowing you to use your phone independently. A small but handy update, considering the previous hassle of disconnecting from the system.
