BMW isn't yet sharing its latest infotainment software with Mini.
Sorry, Mini customers. While BMWs get wireless Android Auto connectivity starting in July 2020, the company's diminutive division doesn't receive the upgrade.
"Mini won’t receive Android Auto functionality at the same time as it was just announced for BMW," according to a Mini spokesperson speaking to BMW Blog. "At this time we don’t have a confirmed timeline of when this functionality may become available on Mini models."

The Android Auto functionality for the BMW models comes with the company's Operating System 7.0 software. Users of the tech can also get their smartphone's information on the vehicle's digital cockpit and head-up display, not just on the infotainment screen. BMW will hold a demonstration of the wireless Android Auto feature at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2020.
