Most Android phones no longer support Android Auto for phone screens.

Google began phasing out the service by rolling out the Android 12 interface, which included a driver-assistance alternative for users who don’t have a large, compatible screen in their car.

The Redditor posted a pop-up message from Google stating that Android Auto will also be removed from older devices.
