Android Auto Wireless will be supported by all smartphones running Android P

Android Auto Wireless was announced back at CES and last month Google announced that both generation of the Pixel smartphones, Nexus 6P/5X could now project to a compatible head unit wirelessly. Now, according to press release from Kenwood, all devices running Android 9.0 P and later will be able to wirelessly project Auto. But still we did not see any official confirmation from google on this.

Kenwood’s latest press release says, the list of compatible phones will grow as Android P starts rolling out. Here’s the excerpt we’re referring to:

The only devices that currently support wireless Android Auto are four versions of the Google Pixel—the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL and the second-generation Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL—and the legacy Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. They must be upgraded to Android OS 8.0 or higher (via an over-the-air upgrade). For other device manufacturers, wireless Android Auto will be implemented with the adoption of Android OS 9.0 or higher.
