The essential Android Auto app allows you to download and install third-party tools
While such a thing is technically possible without a dedicated solution in this regard, the changes Google has implemented in Android Auto prevent third-party apps from appearing on Android Auto unless they are approved and listed on the Google Play Store.
AAAD therefore allows you to install applications such as CarStream, Fermata, Screen2Auto, AA Mirror, Performance Monitor and AA Passenger with just a few clicks, all from your mobile phone and without the need for a PC or other hacks.
But the best news is that no root is required either, so you can just install the app on your device regardless of the phone model and then you should be able to deploy the supporting third-party software including tools. mentioned above, in a matter of seconds.
Created by the same developer who brought us Extras for AA, an Android Auto customization app that people really loved, AAAD doesn’t come with a built-in auto-update engine, but you can always install the latest versions of them. applications directly from the main screen manually.
The developer, however, says such a feature is already in the works.
The free version of AAAD allows a free download every 30 days, while the Pro version obviously unlocks the whole experience and lets you install as many apps as you want, as often as you want.
In case you’re wondering if other apps like Netflix and YouTube can find their way to Android Auto using this app, the developer says that won’t happen. That’s because these apps don’t support Android Auto in the first place – not to mention the fact that you shouldn’t really be using them while driving anyway.
You can find more information about AAAD, including the download link, on the project’s GitHub page here.
