What Android Devices can use Android Auto?
Similarly to how your Apple device for CarPlay needs to be a recent model or operating system to work, Android will also need to use a recent operating system in order to connect and utilize Android Auto in a Chevy vehicle. Currently, you’ll need a phone that is running Android Lollipop 5.0 or higher to use Android Auto in your Chevy.
