Google’s Android Auto app detects bad USB cables

  • A support page provides helpful recommendations regarding getting the right cable.

Recent Android Auto update has added a diagnostic feature that allows users to check if their USB or port is functioning as expected, The Verge reported.

If the phone is not connecting to the car or another device, for example, the tool can identify whether the USB connection is the issue or not.

Images that former XDA Developers editor-in-chief Mishaal Rehman shared on Twitter show that the tool is called ‘USB Startup Diagnostics’.

A support page provides helpful recommendations regarding getting the right cable.

That is not an easy task, however. There is a wide range of USB cables available over the counter which makes it difficult to find a compatible one that supports Android Auto. 

It cannot be assumed that the cable that comes with the phone will work with Android Auto. However, the tool does help in figuring out whether you need a different cable.

The weather on Thursday morning was nice due to rain and a cool breeze that covered the province of Punjab, including the capital city Lahore and its surrounding districts.

Residents of these cities were relieved of the oppressive heatwave that had been predicted by the precipitation as the temperature dropped.

The monsoon rainfall system is expected to begin today and last until July 21, according to the Meteorological Department.

Transportation is becoming more difficult for the general public as a result of the flooding of low-lying parts of Punjabi cities including Jhelum, Hafizabad, Gujrat, and Rawalpindi.

For Gilgit Baltistan, KP, and Islamabad, the Meteorological Department has also predicted the amount of rain.

The NDMA reported that rainfall totaling over 50 mm is expected in the following areas: Sialkot, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Chakwal, Jhelum, and Gujranwala. In Murree, Galyat, Kashmir, and KP, there is also a chance of land slides.

While condemned the death of security personnel in recent terror attacks in Pakistan, the United States on Wednesday praised Pakistan’s ongoing efforts to combat terrorism.

US State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters at a White House news briefing that the US would keep cooperating with Pakistan to maintain regional security and urged the Afghan Taliban not to use Afghan territory as a base for terror strikes in Pakistan.

Additionally, he emphasised that eliminating terrorism was in the best interests of both Pakistan and the United States and that the people of Pakistan had made many sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. The US will continue to assist Pakistan in its economic aspirations, he said, adding that the two countries were cooperating on a number of fronts.

It is important to remember that the World Economic Outlook Report, which was just released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), issues a warning about ongoing global food inflation.

Given the moderate pace of global growth, the global lender has projected Pakistan’s FY25 growth rate at 3.5%.
