Wireless CarPlay has been a 'thing' for a while now, and it appears Samsung is ready to bring the technology to its devices.

Samsung has become the second Android phone manufacturer to support wireless Android Auto, following in the footsteps of Google's own Pixel phones.

According to a report from Android Police the Galaxy S8, S9 and S10, along with the Note 8, 9 and 10 all support wireless smartphone mirroring – provided the user is running Android 9 and version 4.7 of the Android Auto app. You also need to be in the USA, Canada or Mexico.

If that sounds like utter gibberish, it probably just pays to update everything to its latest version...

Actually using wireless Android Auto is dependent on having a compatible head unit, of course. A range of aftermarket units from Pioneer and Kenwood support the technology at this point, but that's it.

On the Apple side of the fence, BMW offers wireless CarPlay, and will soon be joined by a number of Volkswagen Group vehicles with the company's new 'MIB3' infotainment software.
