CarStream: The Ultimate App for Streaming Videos on Your Car Screen
How to Download CarStream: A Guide for Android Auto Users
If you are an Android Auto user, you might have wished that you could watch YouTube videos on your car's display. Unfortunately, Google does not allow YouTube or any other video app to run on Android Auto, for safety reasons. However, there is a way to bypass this restriction and enjoy YouTube videos on your car's screen, thanks to an app called CarStream.
What is CarStream and why you should use it
CarStream is an app that allows you to watch YouTube videos on Android Auto
CarStream is an unofficial app that lets you watch YouTube videos on your Android Auto head unit. It was developed by XDA Senior Member thekirankumar, who also created Extras for AA, an app that lets you customize Android Auto. CarStream works by spoofing the app installer and making Android think that it was installed by the Play Store, instead of a third-party source. This way, Android Auto allows CarStream to run on the car's display.
CarStream has many features and benefits for Android Auto users
With CarStream, you can enjoy many features and benefits that are not available on the official YouTube app for Android. For example, you can:
Surf the web and watch online videos from any website
Stream movies and TV shows from your favorite platforms
Watch videos that you have saved on your phone's memory or your PC at home
Adjust the video quality, speed, and volume
Use voice commands to search and play videos
Switch between different video players
Use picture-in-picture mode to multitask while watching videos
CarStream also supports the latest versions of Android and Android Auto, so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. Moreover, CarStream is free and open source, so you can check its code and contribute to its development.

How to download and install CarStream on your Android device
You need a rooted device or a workaround to install CarStream
Since CarStream is not an approved app by Google, you cannot install it from the Play Store or use it on Android Auto without some modifications. There are two ways to install CarStream on your Android device:
Rooting your device and editing some preference files
Using a workaround that does not require root access or a computer
The first method is more complicated and risky, as rooting your device can void your warranty, expose your device to security threats, and cause performance issues. Therefore, we recommend using the second method, which is easier and safer. The second method involves using an app called Android Auto Apps Downloader (AAAD), which allows you to download and install CarStream and other third-party apps for Android Auto.
You can use Android Auto Apps Downloader (AAAD) to download and install CarStream easily
Android Auto Apps Downloader (AAAD) is an app that lets you download and install CarStream and other unofficial apps for Android Auto, without rooting your device or using a computer. It was developed by XDA Senior Member shmykelsa, who also created Fermata Auto, a media player app for Android Auto. AAAD works by using a token system that allows you to install one app per day for free, or more apps if you donate to the developer. Here are the steps to use AAAD to download and install CarStream:
Download AAAD from its official website or GitHub page and install it on your Android device
Open AAAD and grant it the necessary permissions
Select CarStream from the list of available apps and tap on Install
Wait for the installation to complete and close AAAD
That's it! You have successfully downloaded and installed CarStream on your Android device using AAAD.
You can also download CarStream from GitHub and install it manually
If you prefer to download CarStream from its original source and install it manually, you can do so by following these steps:
Download CarStream from its GitHub page and save the APK file on your Android device
Enable Unknown Sources on your Android device by going to Settings > Security > Unknown Sources and toggling it on
Locate the CarStream APK file on your device using a file manager app and tap on it to install it
Confirm the installation and wait for it to finish
You have now downloaded and installed CarStream on your Android device manually.
