Google has already released an update
Android Auto users recently encountered a problem – the application was disrupted by the Google One VPN service.
Android Auto is broken due to Google’s VPN, but it can be fixed
The bottom line is that Android Auto can work over both a wired and wireless connection. However, in the first case, users cannot use a VPN. Google One VPN allows you to add Android Auto to exceptions to help troubleshoot wireless connection issues, but that option has been missing from the app for a while.
Users began complaining about the problem back in September 2023. Moreover, for users who had already configured exceptions in Google One VPN, Android Auto stopped working when the VPN was enabled.
A representative from the Android Auto development team said that Google One has already released a fix for the problem. Users are advised to install the latest version of the Google One app and manually add Android Auto to the VPN exclusion list in the Google One app.
