At the end of last year BMW announced plans to add wireless Android Auto support on several of its vehicles, and according to , the update is now available. BMW announced it would arrive in July for vehicles using version 7.0 of its operating system, and while they weren’t able to snag it over-the-air, prompting the dealer for an update during a visit got the correct software installed.

2020年欧冠小组赛One wrinkle to be aware of is that this support works only via wireless, so not every Android phone can make it happen (Google’s is made up mostly of Nexus, Pixel and Samsung devices). That said, they report it worked well with only a few hitches, which is similar to with improved CarPlay support on this version of the software.
