Trying to get Poweramp and Android Auto working again


Recommended Posts

Hi all. 

I'm tacking this ongoing issue of mine, trying to get voice commands to work with Poweramp in Android Auto. I've made two videos where I show this issue, but first of all I perform a factory reset on the phone (LG G8s ThinQ - a 2019 phone). Prior to using this phone I had an LG V20 (a 2016 phone) where I did have success getting voice commands working with Poweramp in Android Auto. 

Here's the videos... I sincerely appreciate people taking the time to watch these and help me troubleshoot this. :)

Worth checking that your Android Auto version is up to date, AA has a lot of reported bugs lately with voice commands generally. There are so many variables that it does get a bit hard to troubleshoot though - device, Android version, Android Auto version, head-unit make and version, etc.

Android Auto is 100% up to date (I install it in the first video). Google Play Music is also 100% up to date. I only did not update Google Maps and the Google app after I did the factory reset. The reason is as soon as I update the Google app, voice commands stop working! Currently I have the navigation voice commands working, but not the music voice commands. So I'm half way to winning! If I update Google app, I'm back to zero. You would think everything would work after a factory reset though... I've also posted these videos on the Google Android Auto Community.
