If you use Android Auto you should not update to the latest version | Technology
The latest stable version of Android Auto is probably causing some crash issues, and this is the only logical solution to fix it.
There is no new version of Android Auto that is free of problems, and the latest stable version, 7.8, which recently reached users, is causing the operating system to crash, and it seems to be due to wireless mode.
And it is that in recent days a large group of users is complaining that their Android Auto wireless connection has stopped working, and this has happened to them since they updated to the latest stable version, specifically Android Auto 7.8.
It’s not really clear what’s going on, but most users report that Android Auto tries to start but most of the time everything stays on a black screen, while other users report that the OS boots for them, but immediately hangs.
It seems that the culprit is the latest stable version 7.8, something that Google seems to already know, although they are not usually exactly quick when it comes to releasing update patches to solve these types of problems.
Right now, beta testers are running Android Auto 7.9, which doesn’t seem to have this issue, so once stable 7.9 is available to everyone, these crash bugs should be fixed.
If you are affected by this issue on Android Auto, the best solution is to manually download an APK of the older version of Android Auto, 7.7, and install it manually. On the other hand it also disables automatic updates.
