Android Auto - Playlist order

When I start a playlist in Android auto, the order changes to 'standard'.
If I start the playlist on my phone the order is 'last added'.
Is there a way so the order stays at 'last added' when I start the list from Android auto?
The same happens with Android Wear.

Hi there @Kevin.Duarte.Costa

Could you try the following steps, exactly in this order, to see if it helps with your issue?

  • make sure you're connected to a wifi network
  • uninstall Deezer
  • clean your phone's cache
  • remove the SD card
  • turn off your phone
  • reinstall Deezer
  • open Deezer and download at least one album or playlist
  • reinsert the SD card
Hello Rudi
Sorry for the late reply.
I finally had time to do this on two phones and both still have the same issue.

Hi there again @Kevin.Duarte.Costa

I've checked with our devs and there's a suggestion. Have you tried connecting your mobile to the car before opening the Deezer app? Let me know what happens!
Hello Rudi,

Yes I tried that.
The same thing happens in the Android auto app by itself, without a connected car, by the way.

Hi there @Kevin.Duarte.Costa

Have you got the car's firmware and our app up-to-date?
Android Auto and Deezer are on the newest version, the car itself, too.

Hi there @Kevin.Duarte.Costa

Could you try posting a screenshot? Have you tried connecting the phone with a cable to see if it makes a difference?
Hi again!
So in the screenshots you can see my playlist in the orders "zuletzt hinzugefügt" (last added) and "standard".
I want it to play in the last added order, so the first song should be "thank you".
But when I start the playlist from Android auto it starts the song sweet little lies first (standard order).

Is there no solution?

Hi @Kevin.Duarte.Costa sorry for the late reply. We do not seem to have an update on this. I will ping the developers again, can you just tell me which version of the app you have installed at the moment?
Bumping in this thread. Having this exact same issue on android. Using Deezer version which is the latest at the moment.

Playing music through deezer directly, my playlist track sorting stays on 'recently added' but playing through AA, it switches to 'default' track sorting.
