Android Auto lets you access most of your navigation apps, music, and more useful apps on the road without using your hands. You can use it to keep you entertained on a boring car drive. But, sometimes we like to watch a video while on the go, but the safety concerns of Google do not allow us to use YouTube or Netflix while driving. We have a few third-party apps which let you stream YouTube videos without the official YouTube App on your Android Auto.
Warning: Do not use a mobile phone or watch video while driving. Focus on road, and your partners, friend or family can enjoy a video streaming on Android Auto.
Ways To Play YouTube Videos On Your Android Auto
Google does not allow its video-playing apps to run on Android Auto due to its safety guidelines. Also, it is not safe to see videos while driving as it can be a distraction while on the road. But when you have a bunch of people with you and you want to watch a video on the go, these third-party apps from Android Auto App Downloader (AAAD) could be useful for your entertainment.
Third-Party Apps For Android Auto Video Playback
Simply when Google does not allow you to use the official YouTube App, you have to find some other way. The app downloader for Android Auto lets you download third-party apps that can run on Android Auto car display. Some of these video playback apps allow you to access the content from your YouTube and play them on Android Auto in your car. In this way, you can stream videos while driving. Before you download the apps for video streaming make sure your car is connected to the Android Auto. Also, download the AAAD App on your device. Search for AAAD Apk to get download options for this app.
CarStream is a third-party app that is available on AAAD to stream YouTube videos on Android Auto.

Fermata Auto App
Another app that we have to stream YouTube videos without the official app is the Fermata Auto App. Similar to the CarStream App, Fermata Auto can also be downloaded from the AAAD App on your Android.
