If you've got a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P phone, everything should happen wireless and automatically once you power up your auto, as per a message from Google.

In 2016, Google added the ability for Android Auto users to run apps and software right from their mobile devices to their car's head unit display.

A member of the Android Auto team confirmed that the feature is now available, and he linked to a new support page that outlines the requirements for devices to support wireless connections to compatible head units.

A high-quality USB cable for initial setup. Additionally, users must have Android Auto app version 3.1 and higher to be able to start Android Auto on their vehicle display without a USB cable or wire. After that, the wireless mode should work.

The Android Auto app version 3.1 and up.

"Additional device support will be coming in the future", the company said in the announcement post.

If you don't have a Nexus or Pixel device, don't lose hope but I wouldn't count on a quick solution.

Support for more vehicle head units and displays will roll out in the future, Google said.

Google no doubt has more plans up its sleeve for this product, and we'll be watching Google I/O closely to see what develops.
