If you’ve been using the Android Auto app on your phone screen, you’ll need to switch to Google Assistant’s driving mode, a new integrated driving experience. If your car is compatible with Android Auto, you can still connect directly to your car’s display.  Learn about other ways Google is ready to make your drive better.

When playing music audio switches random to phone speaker and back.
1
When playing music over Spotify the audio over the car speakers stops and switches to the phone speaker and then back which is very anoying.
All this happens very random, sometimes it does this 2-3 times in 3-5 minutes and sometimes it runs flawless for 20 minutes until the next hickup. I also had it that the audio keeps playing over the phone speakers until i reconect the cable and restart AA.... until the next time

Some Hardware Data:
Car:  2019 Peugeot 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport
Phone:  Google Pixel 4XL
Original and new Google USB-A to USB-C cable
Even tested some freshly opened cable from other brands.... no luck!

And yes AA and my Phone have the newest updates available even the car infotainment system has the latest update.

The curios thing is this problem is new since 2 weeks, befor no problems.

I am having the exact same issue. Only seems to cut out when I'm listening to Spotify through AA. Audio cuts out and plays through my Pixel 4xl speakers just for a couple of seconds then reconnects to car. I have tried the following. Different cables, reset Bluetooth on car and on phone complete reset of Bluetooth cache and settings, twice. Played Spotify over car using Bluetooth (not through AA) and it was fine, no cut outs. Only happens with AA. Previous to this problem which has happened the past week or so had no connection problems with AA. Using pixel 4xl and the car is a Vauxhall New Mokka 2021 model.

I have also the same issue and it's very annoying.
The problems started about 2 weeks ago. Sometimes playback is interrupted every few minutes and sometimes it goes well for half an hour.
It affects any audio output, be it YouTube Music, Google Podcast, or TuneIn.

Phone: Pixel 4
Car: Opel Astra

I'm having the same issue.

71 plate Audi A3
Android 12
AA version 6.9 613724

Only happens so far if my Pixel 4XL is plugged in and not wirelessly connected to the Audi MMI. I only noticed it in the last week, which is after I updated to Android 12 so not sure if that is coincidence? 

On a couple of occasions audio switches to the phone speakers and won't switch back to car audio unless I disconnect and restart the phone.

Could it be something to do with charging status of the phone? I.e. phone getting confused when fully charged and switching audio as well as switching power?

Definitely AA or Android 12 issue and not a Spotify one because it doesn't happen when listening to Spotify on CarPlay on my work iPhone 6S
