For all those who connect their mobile to the car through a cable or via Bluetooth, to have the Android screen on the dashboard, this is essential. For this reason, we want to show you all the ways that exist to know the latest version of Android Auto and that before a trip, do not forget to be up to date.
Know the version officially
We start with the safest, most reliable and also simple method, the one that offers us to know through the Google application store, the version that is available of Android Auto. It is the same place where we are going to have to apply the published updates, for which we only have to follow this process:
- We open Google Play on the phone.
- In the search engine we write Android Auto.
- Click on the official app.
- We enter News.
- We go down to the bottom.
We will find the section where it says version and in it, we will be able to know exactly the number to which it refers. In addition, just below we will be able to know the date on which this update from the American company is integrated into the Google Play store with the other app news. We can also be aware of the news and the moment in which the new versions are implemented through MovilZona, so, by following us, you will have all the information you need and the exact number of each version that you can enjoy on the phone.
For those who don’t just want to know what the latest official version of Android Auto is, but want to stay on top of beta updates and enjoy the news as soon as possible, there are other methods to know that version. In this case, we will always be ahead of the rest, although we could run into unexpected errors that spoil our experience when connecting the phone to the car. If, despite everything, you are interested, we will show you the steps you must follow.
Among the many repositories that exist on the internet, APKMirror is one of the fastest in publish the new versions when Google releases them. It is normal that once a new update is presented, it takes a few days for it to reach our smartphone or appear in the app store, so as not to have to wait, we will only have to access the APKMirror Android Auto page and look at the number of the version above.
Whenever it is accompanied by the word beta, it means that it is in testing and when it is not, it will be ready to reach all phones sooner or later. We can get ahead of the others by clicking on the number and later downloading one of the versions that appear to us, any of them can work, although normally the one with x86 architecture will. Once installed, our smartphone will enjoy it and when it reaches Google Play, there will be no compatibility errors.
