    Android Auto only reads text messages, not displaying it. Not sure how it can read a photo or video in MMS?

    Android Auto only will read SMS, it will not pass any MMS messages. I find this to be unacceptable. Android Auto s/b updated to strip out text only from a MMS message and read it to the driver. I think most people do no even realize that they are missing half of their messages. This makes AA unusable and I am back to using just my phone in all my AA equipped cars. When is Google going to wake up and support MMS text only?? We are well into the 21st century now.

    No response from Android??? I use the Google ecosystem, including Pixel2 phone w/ Projectfi. I use Projectfi SMS email (msg.fi.google.com) to push alarm notifications from my home security system to my phone. Projectfi SMS email, only supports MMS messages. Android Auto does not support MMS messages, so I do not receive high priority messages. When will Android Auto support just text of MMS, or Projectfi support SMS, so I can use Android Auto. Googles ecosystem does NOT play well within itself! Evidently this is a stumper for the Google engineers. VERY sad! So much for AA, another POS.

    What does it say when you receive a picture?

    Probably a safety feature.

    Texts in MMS can be long. Or it could be a group message.

    It makes perfect safety sense to read out short messages only.

    It reads nothing but the picture name. I'm ok with that. Most of my moms are group texts between family members. For now, I just use both systems same time
