I have a Google Pixel 3 connected via Bluetooth (also tried via usb port) and when i talk with someone or with Google, the sound comes only from the right speaker.

My Mitsubishi dealer told me that it's how it works. They have reported this behaviour to Mitsubishi but no fix is available yet.

Is it really the expected behaviour ? Is there a way to fix that ? Is it an issue that affect all phones ?

I was wondering about the same thing!

This only affects phone calls. Music plays fine on all speakers.

Audio from phone calls can only be heard from the speaker on the opposite side of the car to the driver. This is true in both left and right hand drive cars.

This is by design

I would love to hear the reasons behind this, it's the first time i'm seeing this in a car.

Mitsubishi doesn't think that this is an issue that needs to be fixed, as it is a design choice.

It may be to do with expecting only the passenger to be making/taking calls when driving - anyone know the legal position in Japan?

This is a big issue for me. With the iphone I used to have at least calls went through the USB which allowed both speakers to work. With Android Auto we are stuck with bluetooth audio for phone calls and that means one speaker only on the passenger side. Horrible sound quality! I can barely hear anything and the volume is very low. Very much a deal breaker for me. What in the world are those Japanese thinking???

Not true at all. Android Auto ONLY works with USB and not Bluetooth. Either way you only get sound from the speaker on the passenger side which is crystal clear on both my 2014 and 2019 Phev.
