After announcing the addition of Apple CarPlay compatibility on select models in 2019, it didn’t take Toyota fans long to ask when Android Auto, the android equivalent, could be expected in the lineup. Toyota was hesitant to add the system to its fleet citing security concerns, but now those concerns have all been addressed and the Android Auto launch is on the horizon with select 2020 models equipped with the feature arriving later this calendar year. Learn more about which models will have Android Auto compatibility and how to connect the system in your Toyota below.

Android Auto Connection Instructions:

  • STEP 1 – Download the Android Auto App on Your Compatible Smartphone
  • STEP 2 – Open The Android Auto App on Your Smartphone
  • STEP 3 – Connect Your Smartphone to Your Vehicle Using a USB Port
  • STEP 4 – Choose Enable Always or Enable Once
  • STEP 5 – Open Android Auto On Your Infotainment Screen

Which Toyota models have Android Auto compatibility?

Currently, no Toyota models in the 2019 lineup are equipped with Android Auto compatibility. However, Toyota has announced that Android Auto will be coming to the 2020 lineup on the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Tundra and those models should start being released a little later this calendar year. We expect that that list will grow as other 2020 Toyota models are produced.

    Has there been any discussion from Toyota about providing a firmware patch for us 2019 Toyota owners? Recently purchased a 2019 Highlander. Thanks.

    Wow. No android auto on the 2019 Rav4? Completely inexcusable in this day and age. I love the Rav4, but I will be taking it out of consideration in my buying decision due to not having it. That’s a deal-buster omission for me. The Rav4 is so good, but it fails completely on what should be such a simple thing. How stupid! Whoever made that decision should be fired.

    I just purchased a 2020 Corolla. The Entune 3.0 app suite and software are absolutely terrible, and I uninstalled. It wouldn’t save my settings from one trip to the next, and the apps I was using would load only 1/2 the time. Every time I got in the car, I’d have to spend 5 minutes doing app maintenance, so I gave up on it. I agree with Tom Amato. A firmware patch to allow for Android Auto really needs to be rolled out. I feel like I paid for a major feature on my new car that is useless to me.

  4. Rachel Hagamuffin says:

    Totally agree! Same issues with my 2020 Corolla

    Same here! 2020 Corolla. Get your ish together, Toyota!

    I recently purchased a 2019 Camry SE and it’s sad to say that, as other Toyota owners have mentioned before, The Entune 3.0 app suite and software are absolutely terrible. I hope Toyota will roll out an update to allow Android Auto compatibility for 2019 models when it’s released.

  7. Bill says:

    Toyota needs to deploy Android Auto on Corolla Hatchbacks for 2020. I am in the market for a new car in the 2020 or 2021 model year and Corolla hatch is on my list because it seems like a great value and the size I want. But I will not buy a car that doesn’t integrate with my phone, and I’m not switching to Apple i-Phone.

  8. Rich says:

    Ha, all you 2019 and 2020 owners, imagine having the Toyota Camry 2018 with the then highly vaunted new Entune 3.0… Ah, those were the days.

  9. Kaka says:

    When is Camry 2019 le getting Android Auto?
