Youtube & WebBrowser for Android Auto (WORKING)

Post by Supermann25 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 7:20 am

Now before I begin, I am not telling anyone to watch videos or use these apps while driving that would be dangerous. This is more for your passengers or if you are waiting in the car for a while and want to take advantage of the screen :D

on XDA I have come across two apps which work on android auto and seem very useful (links are below for downloading the apks)
- YOUTUBE
-WEB BROWSWER

http://www.thekirankumar.com/blog/
https://github.com/nerone-github/WebViewAuto

just follow the instructions and will work fine on the latest version of android auto.

other apps which I am currently using on android auto:
- Spotify
- Waze
- MD Player (if you have songs stored on your phone)
- Tunein Radio

How did you get them to work? The screen shots refer to the head unit version of AA, the app doesn't have those options available from what I can see to make it work?

Down load the app. Put AA into developer mode press send to car on the you tube app .
When your phone is connected to the car press the screen where you choose your music apps and you tube is in there

That's great thanks, the voice search with YouTube works really well but the browser didn't seem to offer a keyboard function to type, did it work for you?

I tried Youtube Auto for a few minutes now and it seems to work just fine. Great job from the developer.

yeah this one is hit and miss but there is a keyboard in this app. it is located on the top left corner. it always looks like entering a new url but this is not the case it will type where you want it too.

best way to use this app is to open up on your phone and save your url to favorites. least this way when you open on Android Auto your link is in the favorite sections. plays all video types as i have tried iptv and football which plays fine.
