I know its an old post but I just found it, to enable dev settings on the newest android auto, you have to go to settings on the companion app and click "Version" until it lets you be a dev.
Nevermind. I realized there was a newer version and everything is perfect! Best app ever!!!This is brilliant! Is there any chance you could take a look at Audify Music Player? It only lets me control via phone rather than car screen. I'd be happy to donate toward the cause.
Thank you for contacting the Android Auto Team.
I see that there is some confusion as to why your app, AnyAutoAudio (dk.jonske.AnyAutoAudio), did not qualify for Android Auto.
After further investigation, we found your app does not qualify for Android Auto as we are currently only accepting two types of apps:
• Audio apps that allow users to browse and play music and spoken audio content in the car.
• Messaging apps that receive incoming notifications, read messages aloud via text-to-speech, and send replies via voice input in the car.
Here are some specifics regarding this issue that are present in your app:
• Your app is not a media app but a tool for other media apps. Your app allows other media apps to play in the Android Auto UI and does not play media of it's own. This functionality is not approved for Android Auto.
After you address the matter mentioned above, please submit a new version of your app and our team will gladly review it for you.
I hope I was able to provide you with some clarification. If you have further questions or concerns please reach out to us again. We will be glad to help.
I was using AnyAutoAudio with no problems then received a message telling me it was removed from google play. I came here to download the new apk and not it will not install, getting the message that the file is corrupt. Can you help me either with an older version that will install or a non corrupted version of the current apk. I really depended on this app to play my audio books through Android Auto in my car. Thank you.
I tried this with Apple Music on a Samsung Galaxy S9. It caused my Android Auto to freak out and it kept rebooting / refreshing the Android Auto interface on my car. It was an endless loop of my screen flickering until I closed out the AnyAutoAudio app. I will definitely keep an eye on this app for an update.
