Android Auto Glitch: Google Assistant Reads Messages Aloud

Published Categorized as Tech No Comments on Android Auto Glitch: Google Assistant Reads Messages Aloud

Android Auto users are familiar with the frustration of encountering persistent bugs, often challenging to diagnose and resolve swiftly. Despite ongoing efforts by Google, some glitches persist for months, prompting users to seek workarounds to alleviate frustrations during their driving experience.

A recent update to Android Auto and associated apps introduced a perplexing error resembling a new feature, as users reported Google Assistant reading out loud every newly sent message.

This unintended “feature” triggers after sending a message, with Google Assistant vocalizing the text word by word, causing frustration, especially with longer messages.

While the exact cause remains uncertain, speculation points to a recent update to Android Auto or the Google app, powering voice command integration. Despite users’ attempts to find workarounds, including downgrading to previous versions, a resolution remains elusive.

Google’s Android Auto team has acknowledged the issue, soliciting additional information from users, yet a timeline for resolution remains unclear. Notably, while the error affects some users, its widespread impact appears limited, with few reports surfacing on forums.

Meanwhile, voice command functionality continues to experience inconsistencies, highlighting ongoing challenges in refining the Android Auto experience.
