However, the driving mode of the Google assistant does not yet have all the features that Android Auto had. Indeed, it is not possible to choose a guide application other than Google Maps with the Google Assistant, for example. It is also not possible to switch to landscape mode for navigation. But the other functions are available, such as being able to manage music while in navigation mode.
Another problem pointed out with the closing of the Android Auto mobile application is that the replacement option is not available everywhere. Google Assistant driving mode is available in Germany, Canada, Australia, Spain, India, USA, Italy, Mexico, UK and France. However, for those who had installed Android Auto on their car screen, they will still be able to use this application for navigation. Only the mobile app is removed.
