You’ll need an Android phone running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher and a data plan to use Android Auto.  For best performance, we recommend a phone with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher.

Tablets are not currently supported.

4/1/19 - Since many new vehicles have wi-fi hotspot built into them, connectivity is no longer an issue for not supporting tablets. Which tablets are compatible with AA, even if sideloading is required?

Hi, 

I recently bought a Nokia 9 that is supported through the android one programme. I have checked on google play and my phone is listed as not supported. 
When can I expect the phone to be supported or is there a workaround so that I can use android auto on my phone? 

kr, 
Gregory

I don't understand why Android Auto is not supported on tablets.  I have a Samsung SM-T380 tablet.  While Google Play would not allow me to install Android Auto directly, I was able to download and install it by other means.  It seems to be working beautifully, at least for my purposes.   I use it primarily for listening to music already downloaded onto my tablet.   My 2019 Ford F-150 does have a hot spot.   But, I still seem to be able to do a number of very useful things (including listening to music) even when my tablet is not connected by WiFi.   Why not allow Google Play to install this very useful app on tablets?

I have Huawei P10 and this application is not compatible. The same situation with Sony Ericsson Z1 compact, but this is "old" phone so I have expected it.

Hello, I'm also facing the "incompatible with your device" issue (as Peter above) with Samsung S9 (Android 8.0.0, no newer updates available). Could anyone please explain the reasons for such incompatibility issues, even with higher-end phones?

There are so many "qualifying" phones that don't work it isn't worth the time to list all of them.
