Android Auto Music Bugs/Features


Recommended Posts

Hello, I understand there are improvements being made to Android Auto and it's still relatively new in it's implementation. I would like to share some music related experiences I've had thus far just in case they are unknown issues, as well as a couple features I'd like to see in the future.

 

I like to shuffle my entire music library. To do this now, I open the app on my phone while connected to an AA head unit. Long press the music library and select shuffle. This works well enough (until it doesn't, more later) but I'd like to be able to shuffle the library from the AA interface instead.

 

I have AA set to continue playing after reconnecting. This is where things get messy. There's 3 different bugs that can occur or, it can work just fine and I have no idea what causes what.

 

The first is that it will resume playback but forget it's shuffling the library. It continues playback then plays the next songs from whichever artist/album was last playing.

 

The second is it will continue playback and shuffling but, skipping tracks becomes unresponsive. I can't skip tracks on the AA interface or the app. Press the button, nothing happens.

 

The third is when I try to correct one of the previous issues and shuffle from the app, just nothing happens. Sometimes i can force close the app, and sometimes I have to disconnect from AA and try again. It can be a bit frustrating.

 

Besides being able to shuffle my entire library, I'd also like to be able to favorite a song.

 

Thanks for your time!

Amazing, all the features I was looking for (and more) are in the latest version!

With my limited usage thus far, it seems the bugs with resume playback are gone as well.

 

Thank you!
