    Yeah. I have the same problem. When the playlist is small (+- 50 items) it loads up ok. When it is 250+ items sometimes it does not work. It keeps displaying the loading icon but nothing appears.

    I'm not using any playlists and it seems the app isn't that reliable in AA mode. A lot of the time it'll say something like, "Plex doesn't appear to be working right now." (or something similar)

    And there doesn't seem to be a great way to play local/synced content in AA mode either, unless you have a playlist. I normally just have Plex play local content in random mode when driving, and there isn't an option in AA mode. Also, voice commands default to the PMS versions, which is counter intuitive. If I tell it to play an artist, it'll play the non-local version. If AA is going to block so many clicks for safety (which I can understand), there has to be a method to do the same tasks via voice commands.

    Android auto support never works for me in either of my vehicles that support AA. Even trying to play audio already synced to my local device. Couldn't play anything.
