    What kind of device are you using? If I remember correctly, not all android devices have this capability. For me, it's easier to use the audio jack.

    Moto X Play. I use auxiliary right now but it's not as high quality and I can't switch tracks with the controls on my car.

    iDevices use a multipin connector, so they can do all sorts of things through it. Android devices use a specific arrangement in the earphone jack for a couple of functions, but the USB connector is basically 2 pins for power, 2 pins for data and, on some phones, video. You can't do things like switch tracks on the same wires the sound is coming out on, but they're the only wires the standard Android spec calls for. (Actually, it doesn't even call for sound on the USB connector.)
