Seems not.
According to the Multimedia User Manual :
"While you are using Android Auto, the following functions
are unavailable:
- Bluetooth audio
- USB and iPod modes
- Searches using the [< > ] knob
- Apple CarPlay"

That's a shame. Car nav and music or android Auto and nothing. We've been using android Auto on a hire car and it's pretty good

We had Waze and Spotify working seamlessly on a hired Golf with Android Auto. I think, I also tested the same functionality on a test drive of a Kona EV.

However how do you handle non-streamable audio? I adore Radio 4 comedy, buy the CD, rip to USB, have a huge amount of shows ready to listen to. Anything suitable compatible with Android Auto?

Just load the files on to your phone and use an Android Auto compatible audio player. If you've got loads of files you may need to get a phone with expandable storage.

You can install AA on your phone and just use it on the phone screen if you like. It's good when you drive with the phone in a holder on the dashboard.

I am currently using Rocket Player on AA to play my ripped FLAC music on the Zoe Bose. Sounds very good, but seems to have some usability limitations - am checking with developer if I am doing something wrong.

You can say "play music using [app name]" and it'll do it in use Google music (which seems to be all my songs stored on my phone) or Amazon music. Not tried others yet.

Waze works fine on android auto, no real difference to normal use. I use pocket casts for podcasts, also works fine for aa.

If you have multiple apps for a category, you can press the category icon again to get a list of apps installed so you can choose which to use.

Music on phone via micro Sd. Will play on android auto via google play music. You can even "ok google" and ask for a specific track to play or ask it to play next track etc. Works great on my Ioniq.
