natively, Google won't let you share your phone screen using Android Auto, an application that over time has been widely used by millions of drivers. Thanks to Android Auto we can count on very useful applications, so if you don't have it installed, you still have time.
Android Auto functions allow you to answer messages, calls, all without touching anything, as well as being able to use navigation, listen to music, among other things. Google has been giving support to this application, but it is expected that it will add various options to make it more complete.
Today we are going to see how share device screen in Android Auto, all through applications, including the one that comes natively on the mobile. Today we have a large handful of apps that will be available outside of the Play Store, Google's official store.

From the mobile phone and without third-party apps
Through smartphones it will be possible to share the Android Auto phone screenHuawei, for example, has the option to project what appears wirelessly. We are not going to need to use any cable, it stands out for activating it and projecting the image (on a PC, a television and other devices).
Xiaomi is another of the manufacturers that is committed to being able to share the screen of any application without third-party apps, at least if you know this option. To get there you have to go to settings, connection and sharing, then choose the “Cast” option and find the screen or device where you want to cast.
Samsung is another of the devices that allows you to share without the need from a third-party app, it is valid if you want to show what appears in Android Auto. Swipe up and down to display the quick settings, tap on "Smart View", now select the TV and send the image that appears on your phone.
It is an application that allows you to share the mobile screen in Android Auto, is probably one of the easiest to use. Screen2auto lets you launch any application, that's why it's one of the most versatile, it's also free and we can use it on our terminal.
It is not available in the Play Store, but that is not why we will not be able to install it, for this you have to give installation permissions from unknown sources. Screen2auto lets you share the image without being root, so if you don't have access of this type it will work for this utility.
It has a floating button to control the application from the screen, ability to reset incorrect resolution and output distortions. It is very similar to AAmirror, one of the apps that is also valid if you want to share the Android Auto screen easily.
The operation of AAmirror is simple, it makes use of the Google Cast application, so it will project everything that comes out of Android Auto on the screen of the vehicle. As with others, you have to give certain permissions to be able to use it, it will ask you for that once you install it.
Thanks to AAmirror you can launch applications, you can make use of Android Auto and make use of the installed tools, both the pre-installed ones and the ones you install. AAmirror works snappy even when you are screen sharing, it will also broadcast everything that comes out on your phone.
You have the normal version, but also the Plus version, with some additions that make it one of the most complete, even ahead of Screen2auto. AAmirror Plus has improvements compared to the AAmirror version, including being able to open several applications, improvements when sharing, among others.
Show Android Auto screen sharing, but in this case it is limited to the applications of the tool launched by Google itself. It will come in handy if we want to broadcast the things that appear on our phone to a second panel at all times, so we have access to the application.
AAstream is just as valid as the previous ones, so if you want to share the screen in Android Auto, it's all a matter of opening the utility and starting to broadcast. AAstream will send the signal to the screen of the car and you will have what it shows, be it an image, movie, etc.
From its appearance, it is similar to the interface of Android Auto, so you can play with it as long as you want and have everything within reach. You can open apps directly from AAstream, all without having to open them in the Android Auto app. It doesn't weigh too much and it's out of the Play Store.

Installers for Android Auto
Android Auto allows the installation of applications, although you have other equally good installers, which will be valid for what we want to do in this case. AA store is one of the essential ones, it is available in Git Hub, a site where the app developer has hosted it.
It allows unlimited downloads of applications and is an important installer, so if you are looking for one of this type, it is the best positioned. To start broadcasting you have to accept the recording notice, necessary if you want to share the screen using Android Auto.
In addition to it, on Android you have YYYD, the two are similar and equally valid, so it is best that you can install one of the two, although the first does it unlimitedly. You can use both on Android from version 4.0 onwards, as well as the latest, Android 12.

Retransmitting content goes through having autonomy
A piece of advice when it comes to broadcasting is to have autonomy, if you don't have it, the best thing is that you don't do it with any of the apps if you want to keep the phone in an optimal way. To start being able to share screen on the phone through Android Auto, at least 70 or more is required.
When it comes to broadcasting any content, the expense can be high, so it is best that you go through the charging base before this. If it is fast charging it will take a little while to have it to that percentage of 70 to 80%. For the rest, you can share any type of information.
