Deezer Music app gets CarPlay support for paid subscribers

Deezer Music, the music streaming service with around six million subscribers, is today launching support for Apple’s CarPlay platform.

The service has both free, ad-supported and paid plans, but the CarPlay feature will be limited to its Premium+ and Elite subscribers. Premium+ is the company’s paid monthly plan that removes advertising and adds a few features, while Elite is an upgraded plan with high definition audio available only to Sonos users currently.

Some features you’ll find in the app for CarPlay include:

  • Listen to albums, playlists and tracks
  • Use Flow to discover new music or hear your favourites based on your individual
  • listening behaviour
  • Listen to one of Deezer’s many Mixes to suit your mood
  • Access your music in offline mode

Deezer has around 35 millions songs and 40,000 podcasts and it’s available in 180 countries. In the US the service is currently only available for Cricket Wireless subscribers, and Sonos and Bose customers.

The updated Deezer Music iOS app with CarPlay support should hit the App Store sometime today.

Mercedes-Benz gives hands-on demo of CarPlay in new C-Class [Video]

Yesterday Mercedes-Benz sent over some images of Apple’s new CarPlay feature for iOS running in its new C-Class set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this week. Today the company has released a new video that gives us a better look at the feature up and running in the vehicle. Some people have been not so impressed with Mercedes’ implementation of the touch display in the new C-Class. It does look like somewhat of an afterthought the way it floats above the dash rather than being built right into the console like in Volvos and other vehicles. Ferrari, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz are showing off CarPlay this week, but Apple expects many more partners to launch the feature in new vehicles later in the year.
