Android Auto It has been created by Google so that we do not suffer distractions while driving and, at the same time, we can be informed of the latest news, also be able to listen to music or receive instructions in the corresponding navigation application.
Previously there had already been reported failures in Android Auto related to music or applications of navigationand now an annoying bug is being reported where you’re going to have to forget about the setup wizard. Google tell you about the latest news.
As noted on the Google forums, while the Google Assistant can search for our sources of news favorites and then read them so that we do not get distracted behind the wheel, the truth is that it seems that it is a function that has not been working well lately.
However, some users are claiming that Android Auto automatically starts playing Reuters TV news every time they start the engine, and more worryingly, many users do not have this news source set up.
Others also report that they start receiving news from sources they haven’t even set as favorites or that their favorite sources are ignored.
The solutions if you are affected by the error
However, we have a number of solutions until Google addresses the issue, and some users claim that disabling the news component in Google Assistant is the solution.
If you want to disable it, you must go to settings, then look for the “customize launcher” section, and uncheck the news option, so Android Auto should no longer read you those favorite news.
Other users also point out that clearing the cache and data of the Android Auto application and also of the Google application makes things return to normal.
It should be noted that the Google application is responsible for driving the Google assistant, which in turn reads the news in Android Auto.
At the moment Google has not recognized this bug, so it is highly unlikely that it will be resolved in the short term.
