Some users’ taskbar and icon sizes on Android Auto are amusingly large, and Google is looking into it.

While Android Auto is a fantastic platform for staying connected to navigation, music, and messaging while driving, it occasionally seems to have strange glitches. Google is currently working to address a problem that has a minor impact but is causing certain Android Auto users to see large icons.

This week, Android 12 and Android Auto have a known bug, according to A thread on Googles support forums . The problem causes the taskbar and icons in the Android Auto UI to bloat to an absurdly huge size, making them unusable.

The Android Auto symbols are typically left occupying a sizable amount of the display on Google’s forums, with the same user posting to Reddit as well.

The taskbar occupies nearly half of the interface, with the Home button taking up the majority of space. Large icons on the homescreen would undoubtedly be inconvenient, but the enormous taskbar looks to be the more significant usability problem.

Although the precise source of this is unknown, it appears to be independent of cables and current Android Auto versions. Instead, it appears that the phone is the cause of the issue.

Even though there have only been a few reports of this issue, Android 12—specifically Android 12 on various international devices—seems to be a recurring theme. Although there is one claim about a Samsung Galaxy A53 in the mix, Oppo, OnePlus, and Xiaomi smartphones seem to be the main sources of the majority of reports.

This most recent report makes mention of the Galaxy A53 and two Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro cellphones that have the problem. But a few months ago, some users were seeing experienced the same problem on devices made by OnePlus 9 Pro, Oppo Find X3 Neo, and Xiaomi 11 Pro.

We can anticipate a patch to arrive in due course since Google categorized this problem as one that it is looking into.

Google is actively looking on persistent connection issues with the with the Galaxy S22 and the Pixel 6 series, as well as some issues with the stemmed from the Android 12 update on a number of devices.
