Android Auto icons are too big to use.  This error is also seen by others

Tech Highlights:

  • The taskbar in the UI is also expanded, meaning less space overall. The result is an interface that falls well short of being usable for those experiencing the issue. How likely are you to see the new Android Auto icons bug? Of course, the initial instances of the newly spotted issue all seem to center around in-car displays. That’s as opposed to those using Android Auto, not to be confused with Android Automotive, via other methods. But those units also don’t appear to be at the root of the problem. Particularly since it appears on a range of displays and connective cables.

  • Users of Android Auto are now apparently experiencing a new glitch that pushes the platform’s icons past their usable boundaries. This fault has been reported in Google’s Android Auto community forums. In conclusion, it looks like the primary navigation icons are enlarging to the point that they virtually fill the entire lower half of Android Auto displays. On the other hand, the surviving icons are also expanding. Despite not being nearly as big, as seen in the picture given below. But in the end, those likewise wind up using so much room that only a few icons can be shown on the screen.

The common denominator in all of the instances that are cropping up seems to be Android 12 on international devices. And only a few regionally available devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy A53 appear in the reports. So the primary culprit seems to be the latest available version of the OS as installed on devices from the likes of OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, and similar brands.

It’s not immediately apparent why, exactly, those devices are affected. However, Google has reportedly set its sights on fixing the issue. Marking it as under investigation in its bug tracker logs. Whether or not that means a fix will be incoming anytime soon remains to be seen. Especially since this doesn’t appear to be a widespread problem for the technology overall. Making this arguably a less pressing matter than some others recently in the news.
