Android Auto

Android Auto is one of Google’s most talked about products; however, most of the time, it is always in the news with some negative things. The infotainment system is frequently surrounded by some bugs, and many of the time, the same bugs appear again and again. For example, now, an issue with voice commands has surfaced again.

Android Auto is one of the most used car infotainment systems due to its features. However, whenever users try any function, some problems surface; the voice command issue is also one of the irritating issues, which doesn’t let users correctly navigate through voice commands. 

As you know, voice command plays an important role in the functionality of Android Auto; with this capability, the users of Android Auto can easily get information and also perform certain tasks. The voice command in Waze also helps users to take advantage of getting several things done for proper navigation.

For your information, Waze is a type of navigation that uses real-time data from the app’s users to provide the best route to the user’s destination. It is also capable of showing real-time situations like accidents, traffic jumps, speed traps, construction, and other obstacles. Users can store a list of friends on the app so they can keep track of each other on a trip or spot.

The voice command issues are spotted on the Android auto, which is running on v10.9 or above, so the temporary solution to the issue is to downgrade the application to v10.8. To install the downgrade version, you can visit this link, and when you install it, disable the automatic updates.
